This final report describes the activities and accomplishments of the Oklahoma Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project, an effort to systematically provide training, resource provision and technical assistance (TA) to approximately 120-155 children and youth with deaf-blindness, their families, educators and service providers. The overall impact and benefit of the project was a stronger/cost effective service delivery system of training and TA for families and service providers of these students. Additional benefits were improvements or increases in: (1) qualified personnel, (2) opportunities for education within natural/least restrictive environments, (3) numbers of students with effective communication systems, (4) family involvement, (5) identification/tracking system, (6) better collaboration among agencies, and (7) dissemination of information regarding exemplary practices. Individual sections of the report cover the project context, project goals and accomplishment summaries, problems encountered and their solutions, and implications for policy, practice, and research. Appendices list the 36 statewide training workshops and inservice trainings and provide a data table of project data across goals. (DB)
