The 2020-2021 school year is upon us and that means a new round of CHAT with the DTAT!


The Deafblind Technical Assistance Team (DTAT) is offering an opportunity to ask questions about student behaviors, communication, sensory issues, literacy strategies, assessment practices and anything else that you or your team finds challenging when working with a child who is deafblind.

A session is offered each month and is limited to one team per session.
