Addressing Equity in the Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Network

Due to a broad range of challenges in identifying and referring children with deaf-blindness and the cultural and linguistic diversity of the population, the National Deaf-Blind TA Network has created a framework and process for implementing a cultural ambassador program within state deaf-blind projects.  Demographic data from states points at under identification and under referral of children from traditionally underrepresented groups.  This presentation will discuss high quality practices chosen for use and the systemic challenges in implementing practices within low incidence service delivery. Discussion will include processes for assessing internal project capacity, building state level partnerships, and sustaining practice.
