All children can read. Let's talk about how. This national initiative is a collaboration with state deaf-blind projects and other partners to increase knowledge and awareness of evidence-based literacy instructional practices and validate the role that literacy plays in enhancing the quality of life for all learners. This initiative brings together individuals interested in sharing thoughts, questions, or resources related to literacy instruction for children who are deaf-blind.
Technical Assistance & Support
National technical assistance for this initiative focuses on creating publicly available tools and information about literacy development for children who are deaf-blind and on building the capacity of state deaf-blind projects to provide technical assistance and training around literacy instruction to personnel working with children who are deaf-blind.
The Literacy for Children with Combined Vision and Hearing Loss website is an online tool designed for parents, teachers, and service providers.
For one-on-one consultations around the use of the Literacy website, contact Initiative Lead, Julie Durando.
