Description of Practice Report: Separated by a Driveway: Collaboration between Two State Specialized Schools to Assess Students with Deafblindness

Two years ago the California School for the Blind (CSB) and the California School for the Deaf (CSD) began a collaborative effort to provide assessment, consultation, and instructional services to students who are deafblind. Prior to this time, students who are deafblind received limited support from teachers of students who are visually impaired and orientation and mobility (O&M) specialists. Although the students with deafblindness discussed in the report presented here currently have enough usable vision to qualify them as “visual learners,” many of these students have the potential to lose significant vision over time. The purpose of this report is to share information about the outreach, assessments used, challenges faced, and the rewarding aspects of serving students who are deafblind.
