Dakota Cohort Trainings in Deaf-Blindness (Online)

May 16-August 8

The Dakota Cohort training addresses the training needs of para-educators, as well as early interventionist and school personnel, who work with children with combined vision and hearing loss, in order that students receive the support they need to be successful in their educational and post-secondary endeavors. Much of what is learned can be applied to children with other types of disabilities.

Participants will be provided an introductory online webinar, which allows them to meet other fellow participants, review timeframes and Moodle technology. Subsequent sessions will be completed independently on your own within the suggested timelines.

Registration is now closed.
