The WDBTAP is a project within the Wisconsin Educational Services Program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WESPDHH) Outreach and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. This project runs on a 5 year grant cycle beginning October 1, 2013 and ending September 30, 2018. This grant was previously housed at the Silver Lake College as Wisconsin Deaf-Blind Education.
Could you use more support in providing strategies for working with your child/student? The Wisconsin Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Project is available to provide support at no cost to children who are current on our federal deaf-blind registry. Some benefits of being on the registry:
- Equipment trials
- Lending library with resources
- Workshops/trainings specific to the needs of this population
- Family workshops/trainings
- Free onsite programming recommendations/strategies
If you are not sure your child/student could be identified as having a combined vision and hearing loss, please contact the grant coordinator (608) 356-0091.
