Project SALUTE involves systematic observation of four children who are deaf-blind (ages 2-12 years) in collaboration with their families and educational teams. Information about the effectiveness of selected strategies for these individual children is available in FINDINGS and the project manual that will be published by AFB Press (www.afp.org) by Spring 2006.

For the purpose of data collection in the project, we have developed and used the following:

  • Field Procedures describes the step by step process for gathering and sharing information about tactile strategies being used at home and at school
  • Family Interview documents observations and use of tactile strategies with the child at home and with the family
  • Service Provider Interview documents observations and use of tactile strategies with the child at school

We have posted these materials because we have received requests for copies to assist others in obtaining systematic information about tactile strategies being used with an individual child.
