Presented by Melinda Wolford, PhD, NCSP
School educational teams are responsible for evaluating the needs of students with disabilities and providing intervention strategies to address identified needs. Although each child presents unique learning characteristics, children who have a combined vision-hearing loss (deafblindness) may exhibit challenging behaviors that affect the capacity to accurately assess and identify a child’s needs for purposes of designing and implementing appropriate instruction and intervention. Assessing Behaviors in Children with Deafblindness and Low Incidence Disabilities is designed to assist school psychologists and other educators in assessing student behavior and using those assessment data in the development of individualized behavior intervention plans.
