A comprehensive system of support for students who are deafblind positively impacts their learning outcomes and social and emotional well-being. Utah has a unique system of support which includes endorsed teachers of the deafblind, interveners, training and technical assistance, and family support. The purpose of this presentation is to share examples and strategies from Utah for providing the unique and diverse services needed for children who are deafblind including a) the history of our deafblind services and funding sources, b) an overview of the delivery of educational and deafblind project supports, c) ongoing collaboration and planning to appropriately meet the needs of students with deafblindness.
