PA Deaf-Blind Project
Deaf-Blindness is a condition of a combined vision and hearing loss, requiring specific instructional strategies that address the presence of both sensory impairments. Under a federal grant, administered through the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN), the Pennsylvania Deaf-Blind Project offers a variety of training, technical assistance, and resources to assist educators and families in the areas of assessment, instruction, and family involvement activities.
An annual Family Learning Conference is offered to families to promote connection, support, and learning. The Conference will be held from June 22nd – 23rd in Harrisburg, PA. Come experience sharing, caring, and learning together with staff from PaTTAN and the PA Deaf-Blind Project, as well as other families living with deaf-blindness. Educational Consultants are available at each PaTTAN site to support school teams and two Family Consultants are available statewide, providing local, state, and national resources.
