“Just In Time” Tool

There is a new hearing-related resource for families that was shared with ABLE Tech through the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Transition Council. It’s called the  “Just in Time” tool [PDF] and it contains the most essential resources identified by both families and professionals to address hearing-related needs. This tool is designed for broad-based family organizations, such as Family Voices and Parent Training and Information Centers. Additionally, it can be useful for primary care providers and early interventionists to connect families with D/HH essential resources. A Spanish version is available at http://www.infanthearing.org/familysupport/JustInTime_Spanish.pdf.


Oklahoma Deaf Blind TA Project

The Oklahoma Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project is a federally funded project that provides technical assistance and training to families, administrators, educators and service providers of children (birth to 21) who have a loss in both vision and hearing.  In addition, the project maintains the national census of children in the state of Oklahoma who are deaf-blind.  If you suspect you are serving a child with losses in both vision and hearing, refer the child to the project.  Once the child is referred and qualifies, the project provides free technical assistance.  The referral forms are on our website: okdeafblind@ou.edu.
