PaTTAN - Online Course

Session Dates

Closed
This event is by invitation only. You must have a registration key in order to register.

Strategies in this course will equip you to provide intervention--including hands on learning opportunities--to children who are deaf-blind. The strategies build on each other and work together. Learning and implementing these four strategies (as well as strategies you have acquired in other courses) will take time to incorporate into practice. We will explore how to move at the pace most effective with the student with whom you work.

 

Objectives

Participants will:

  • Demonstrate observation skills that promote understanding of the intervener strategies covered in this module.
  • Describe the principle of “do with not for” and identify ways to "do with" students who are deaf-blind.
  • Describe the challenges of being a bridge, rather than a barrier. Identify possible solutions to these challenges.
  • Explain the importance and rationale of hand-under-hand technique and demonstrate the technique.

 

Target Audience

Teams and Individuals working with and/or interested in professional development regarding students who are deaf-blind, such as parents, teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, and other service providers, including those who are not seeking to become interveners.

Individuals attending this course must arrive on time and stay the duration of the course in order to receive Act 48 Professional Education hours. Requests for exceptions are to be brought to the attention of the individual´s Superintendent or IU Director prior to the course.
