Many deafblind students in the United States are not serviced appropriately in the educational system because there is a lack of qualified teachers available. New York State does not have certification for teaching deafblind students. The Canisius College teacher preparation program in conjunction with the New York State Technical Assistance Project Serving Children and Youth Who Are Deafblind (NYSTAP) task force is trying to alleviate some of this lack of knowledge by providing graduate students in the deaf education teacher preparation program with four workshops on deafblind issues. This paper describes the method used to introduce deafblind curriculum as a supplement to the established curriculum of the deaf education graduate teacher preparation program at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York.
