Limited Capacity seats available

This session will describe the existing literature in the field of deafblindness and the importance of conducting further high-quality research to identify evidence-based practices (EBPs). There is little current, well-developed research that meets requirements of quality research designs as specified by the What Works Clearinghouse for this population, which has led to the use of instructional strategies with limited empirical support with children with the most intensive support needs for participation in all activities and settings. Three distinct studies focused on children with impairments in both vision and hearing were conducted to build the research base informing practice in the field of deafblindness. Results and methodological considerations will be presented for this group of three studies. Implications for practice and future research will be discussed, with attention to how implementation of EBPs help build diverse and inclusive communities by increasing the effectiveness and efficiency with which skills required for full school and community participation are taught.
