Educational Core Curriculum (ECC)

The KY DeafBlind Project provides an opportunity for transitional youth to experience the life skills instruction they will need when going on to higher education or a job in their community.  The curriculum ties in Education Core Curriculum into practical goals for each week of the 6-weeks course.  The family plays a vital role in the implementation of each weeks lesson and practice by their student.  The ECC Week was not held in 2020, and the course(2021) was online only.  If you are interested in your youth applying for 2022-23 school year, please contact any of our staff.

 Survey on Supervising Employees

Who Are Deaf-Blind



We need your help disseminating our new survey to people who have recently supervised employees who are deaf-blind. Please share the information below widely with colleagues, employers, employment specialists, recently employed deaf-blind people, rehabilitation counselors, online deafblindness and/or employment networks, or anywhere else you think might reach our target audience.

The survey can be found at the following link https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/5831266/hkncemployersurvey or from our website www.hknc.org


Information About the Employer Survey on Supervising Employees Who Are Deaf-Blind


Securing and retaining meaningful employment is a critical issue for people who are deaf-blind. In recent years, HKNC has expanded its commitment to providing employment-focused rehabilitation and placement services for deaf-blind people, as well as training and information for employers about how to best support their deaf-blind employees. As part of this commitment, we have developed a survey for supervisors of deaf-blind employees that we hope will help improve our employment services. The survey is anonymous. Neither employers, employees nor workplaces are identified. While respondents are asked to consider their experiences with a specific deaf-blind employee, as well as to provide information about demographics and accommodations, responses will be used to create a composite of the deaf-blind employee population as a whole. Individual responses will be compiled into one large dataset that looks at common training and support needs.


Anyone with questions about the survey can contact Megan Conway, HKNC Research Specialist, at megan.conway@nullhknc.org
