Plans for the Assessment, Planning, and Instruction (API) Initiative include the following activities:

  • Establish a work group consisting of state deaf-blind project personnel and university faculty to provide resources and expertise to guide the selection and development of materials.
  • Develop a collection of existing electronic materials on high-quality API practices and house on the NCDB website.
  • Create brief publications that clearly describe the purpose and components of API practices for children with deaf-blindness, aligned with the Council for Exceptional Children Initial Specialty Set: Deafblindness. Initial publications will likely focus on the development of emerging literacy and numeracy, and access to and progress in the general education curriculum and academic content standards. 
  • Provide targeted TA to build the capacity of state deaf-blind project personnel on API practices, specifically how to increase the fidelity of implementation of high-quality practices by early intervention and education personnel and promote access to and progress in the general education curriculum and academic content standards.
  • Provide opportunities for discussion and collaborative decision-making regarding research on assessment, planning, and instruction among university faculty and state deaf-blind project personnel.
  • Publish a training module for teachers on literacy development in children who are deaf-blind (already in development).
