Abstract

According to national surveys, only about 6 percent of teachers who work with students who are deaf-blind have specialized training in the field. The few new graduates of teacher preparation programs in the field, coupled with the shortage of specially trained teachers, indicates that there is a critical need to train more teachers to meet the unique needs of these students.
