Illinois Deaf-Blind Services
Philip J. Rock
Center & School
The purpose of the Center is to serve as a statewide resource
for children who are deaf-blind ages 0-21 and their families, teachers,
and adults who are deaf-blind. Included in the responsibilities of the
Center is providing technical assistance to educational programs serving
children who are deaf-blind, both public and private for children between
the ages of 0-21. PRC library loans, phone consultation, and visits to
the school or home settings as appropriate are available. Inservices and
workshops which address the unique needs of those who are deaf-blind are
offered to teachers and parents. Adults who are deaf-blind are served
by PRC, primarily by information referral.
The Center provides services to the 0-3 year old population. Early intervention programs across the state receive technical assistance and inservice training intervention techniques.
The Center's goals are:
- To assist current service providers in identifying children age 0-21
- To assure that all infants and toddlers suspected of being deaf-blind
are seen for necessary assessments.
- To assure that all infants and toddlers identified with deaf-blindness
are receiving educational support services.
- To provide technical assistance to service providers and parents of
children with deaf-blindness between the ages of 0-21.
