The Florida & Virgin Islands (FAVI) Deaf-Blind Collaborative’s specialists can help educational teams understand the impact of combined hearing and vision losses.
Working with teachers, administrators, related services professionals, other professionals, and paraprofessionals, FAVI can share interventions that have proven effective.
FAVI can help teams set goals and objectives and improve educational services to better meet the needs of students affected by deaf-blindness.
FAVI can visit schools and community settings to help develop individualized supports and strategies.
FAVI is also beginning to support families and educational teams through distance mentorship.
Deaf-blind projects are beginning to use distance mentorship to provide ongoing technical assistance and feedback to families and educational teams.
