Intervention Strategies for Children Who are Deaf-Blind and/or have Significant Disabilities (544kb pdf)
We are excited to have LINDA ALSOP return to North Dakota in September! She currently is the Director of Deaf-Blind programs at the SKI-HI Institute at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. Linda has been a classroom teacher of students with disabilities, as well as a teacher of students with hearing impairments. She has worked directly with children and youth who are Deaf-Blind and their families since 1989, in both early intervention and educational settings. She directs the online USU Program of Studies in Deafblindness and the online USU/Hadley Program of Studies in Blindness. She also consults nationwide in deafblindness and is actively involved in national efforts related to Intervener (paraprofessional) practices throughout the United States.
Throughout the two days, Linda will be addressing the impact of hearing and vision losses; effective intervention; concept development; self-determination; communication; and the role of the intervener or paraprofessional. Please take a look at the website: www.intervener.org for further information about this specialized training that is now available online!
We hope to see administrators, educators, interpreters, parents, families, paraprofessionals, caregivers, and/or therapists who work with children who have Dual Sensory Challenges.
