This course reviews the sense of self and how it is a complicated, multifaceted set of layers that define an individual. Knowing how these layers interact, and what is required to make each layer within a child thrive, will increase the quality of interaction between the individual with deaf-blindness and the intervener.
- Describe four components of self-determination as they relate to the specific needs of students who are deaf-blind.
- Define basic vocabulary, as it relates to self-determination.
- Learners will identify opportunities for self-determination within video-based case studies.
- Conduct environmental analyses to determine what opportunities there are for students with deaf-blindness to develop self-determination skills with partners in actual school settings.
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.
