Region 9 Low Incidence Teacher Completes Deaf/Blind Training

LuAnn Ross, Region 9 special education teacher in Waseca, recently completed the Open Hands, Open Access (OHOA): Deaf-Blind Intervener Learning Modules.

These modules are a national resource designed to increase awareness, and knowledge and skills related to intervention for students ages 3–21 who are deaf-blind and being served in educational settings. The training includes  a collection of 26 online modules, each taking approximately six hours to complete. This is a combined total of 156 hours of learning around the topic of deafblindness.

The Minnesota DeafBlind Project in cooperation with the Minnesota Low Incidence Projects began providing this online learning opportunity in 2016. We are thrilled to congratulate Ross on this huge accomplishment! LuAnn Ross holding her award
