Mississippi Hearing-Vision Registry
The project maintains a federal registry of children in the state of Mississippi who have both a vision and hearing loss. Children must be placed on the registry to qualify for the technical assistance and training services. There is no cost for the services.
The project has a resource library with materials on a range of topics that are available to families, services providers, and the community.
Technical Assistance (TA) and Training
Project staff provide 3 different levels of technical assistance and training based on individual needs and requests from families and service providers. These three types are:
A. Intense TA: Ongoing relationship with individualized team through agreed upon activities towards pre-determined outcomes either child/team or systemic based.
B. Targeted TA: Short term relationship with TA designed to meet the shared needs of multiple recipients that is delivered through a one-time labor intensive engagement or over time with periodicengagements. Examples include hosting trainings or other events, participation in offered “Hosted Modules” without an agreement to work on child-focused outcomes, or facilitating system change teams.
C. Universal TA: Recipient initiated TA with the least engagement with Project staff. Examples are webpage information, brochures, newsletters, Fact Sheets, etc.
