Welcome

Welcome to the North Dakota Dual Sensory Project website. We are a federally-funded, statewide technical assistance and training project designed to support educators and families of children birth through 21 who are deaf-blind. The project has six key goals:

 

  • Goal 1: North Dakota will have an effective and collaborative early identification and referral system for all individuals who have or are at risk for deaf-blindness.
  • Goal 2: North Dakota service providers and families will have high quality technical assistance and training on secondary transition for youth who are deaf-blind.
  • Goal 3:  Service providers and families will receive high quality technical assistance and training on literacy and numeracy for children and youth who are deaf-blind.
  • Goal 4: Families of children who are deaf –blind will engage with professionals through high quality training and technical assistance to assure inclusive education for their children.
  • Goal 5: Educators and related services providers will deliver high quality, research-based interdisciplinary instruction to children and youth with deaf-blindness in inclusive educational environments.
  • Goal 6: North Dakota will have accurate information and data on the needs of children and youth who are deaf-blind.
