A practical guide to the implementation of a family care home for deaf-blind children

This project provides a practical guide to follow in developing a family care home for deaf-blind children. The guide also provides a definition of a family care home and a deaf-blind individual. The rationale confirms the necessity for developing family care homes. The intention of the guide is not to serve as a model family care home, but as a handbook of practical steps entailed in implementing such a facility. The guide provides information concerning home requirements, zoning laws and restrictions, formation of a corporation, funding sources, regulatory agencies, and projected time lines.
