State deaf-blind projects who helped organize the toolbox felt it important to link practices and materials to individual issues encountered in a particular state. For each identified issue you will find: 

  • One or more evidence-based practices recommended for addressing that issue
  • Resources explaining the practices in greater detail 
  • Materials developed and shared by your colleagues for use in implementing recommended practices 


Issues related to Under-Identification in Part C Programs


1. Serious medical complications take priority, so screening or referral for vision and/or hearing loss is not completed.


EVIDENCED-BASED PRACTICES

> Building rapport and establishing credibility


> Highlighting and repeating your message

MATERIALS YOU MAY FIND HELPFUL 

Each of these has been developed by one or more state deaf-blind projects. Permission has been given to adapt for use by other states. Every attempt has been made to acknowledge the original source and we ask that you do the same by adding a notation at the bottom that reads: Adapted from: (Title of document), (Author or Project Name), (Date). If anything is incorrectly identified please contact Megan Cote (megan.cote@hknc.org) or Robbin Bull (bullr@wou.edu). 


2. Referral or screening for vision loss is not automatically considered when there is suspicion or identification of hearing loss.

> Highlighting and repeating your message

4. Lack of knowledge related to specific conditions associated with vision and hearing loss cause providers to not consider hearing and vision losses (and make appropriate referrals or conduct screenings) even when associated conditions are present.
