These comments were shared by Rose Moehring, who is using the OHOA modules in her state.


“I participated in the first four OHOA Modules over the summer, and it was a valuable experience for me. My experience with students who have dual-sensory loss is limited, but the learning activities and insights that the modules provided are useful for every educator, and I learned tools and methods that will make me a better educator for every student. I especially enjoyed the discussions that occurred between the participants, as well as the activities that required us to share our ideas and questions with colleagues, even if they were not enrolled in the Modules. I’m sure we learned as much from each other as we did from the material itself. I plan to continue making my way through the modules, and even if my experiences with students who have dual-sensory loss is small, I know having this experience has made me a better educator.” School for the Blind Librarian


“I recently participated in the taking of modules for the DB Project. These modules are packed with loads of information as it relates to this low incidence population of students receiving services in special education. The modules are easy to follow, show real hands-on taped lessons and make learning such specialized instruction fun and engaging!!! Many of the examples and lessons contained within the modules can be applied to working with other special education students as well! The modules all follow a similar format and build knowledge in digestible bites to assist with their understanding! I found it an easy, affordable way to attain graduate and continuing education credit for licensure. There are so few opportunities to find credit opportunities that apply to such a specific area. While the modules are aimed at training in becoming an intervener, they provide so much more, as anyone in the area of special education knows, it takes a TEAM for student achievement and success. I am currently working on the next set of modules and because they are offered online, you can work at your own pace, and be successful. I would encourage more people to partake in these modules. What an eye-opening experience!!!” Teacher of the Visually Impaired

“The Training has been an exceptional learning experience. As a new early intervention professional, I had very little experience working with the deaf-blind population before starting the co-hort. I can now say I feel prepared to teach and assist in the learning process of individuals with deaf-blindness. These modules not only provide you with valuable information and research on educating the deaf-blind population, but with hands-on learning. The hands-on simulations you complete helps put the information being presented into real life application. Whether you have experience or do not have experience in working with individuals who are deaf-blind, I highly recommend this training for anyone who is in the education/special education field.”

“Loving these modules! Wish we would have had training like this while working on my Master’s.”

In response to taking more modules in the series we provide “I really would like to, at some point, complete all the modules you are going to make available; however, I was hoping you would continue to offer them each semester, so students could take a semester off if they needed to, but resume again the next. I took on WAY too much this fall (these modules, a book study, teaching a class at church, etc.), besides work, so thinking I may need a break this spring semester. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the information I am learning through these modules though, and would definitely continue taking them, no matter when they are available.”
