Mississippi Deaf-Blind Project is a federally funded project to provide technical assistance to individuals between the ages of birth and 21 years. Whether it is in the home, school, or agency setting, our staff can provide assistance and training to help make a better quality of life.
The overall mission of the Mississippi Deaf-Blind Project is to collaborate and coordinate with state agencies and organizations in order to provide family support and cost-effective technical assistance to families and services providers of children/young adults with deaf-blindness:
We believe that:
- activities should be as family-centered as possible,
- technical assistance activities should be individualized for each child or young adult with deaf-blindness,
- technical assistance provisions should have specific outcomes that are clear to both families and services providers,
- team approaches should be used to develop curriculum and adaptations for both educational transitional services,
- activities conducted and products disseminated should be user-friendly and focused on the needs of families and service providers.
