For Families reporting their child with deaf-blindness
Once an individual has been reported to the Florida deaf-blind registry, a family, teacher, or educational team may request individualized assistance from the FAVI D-B Collaborative.
Encourage families to complete a Consent form, so that we can provide information and offer services to children with deaf-blindness, their families, and their educational teams. Once a family has provided consent, any family member or team member may make a request for Technical Assistance (training, consultation, individualized support) from the FAVI D-B Collaborative.
