What is Technical Assistance?

Technical assistance, or TA, is a collaborative process between the project, the professionals, and the family that includes needs assessment, negotiation of goals, and decision making about services. These services may include the sharing of resources and information, networking with other parents or professionals both in-person and online, on-site coaching and modeling, professional development both in-person and online, among other options. Anyone who is involved in the life of a child or young adult who is deaf-blind is an eligible recipient of TA, including parents, professionals, children and young adults who are deaf-blind.
