The Open Hands Open Access (OHOA) Deaf-Blind Learning Modules are a national resource designed to increase awareness, knowledge, and skills related to intervention for students who are DeafBlind and are being served in educational settings (ages 3-21).

Guided coursework using two online modules of the training series:

Module 21:  Sexuality

Module 23:  Behavioral Environments & Supports

The training includes:

  • Facilitated module format with engaging case studies, videos, slideshows, short readings, interactive group discussions and more.
  • Learning from experts, teachers, interveners, individuals who are DeafBlind and families.
  • Distance coaching and course CEUs upon completion of BOTH modules.
  • On average, only 1-2 hours per week are needed to complete the modules (each module takes approximately 3 weeks to complete or can be completed in a shorter time span.  It's completely asynchronous.). The summer cohort has both modules open for flexible scheduling.
Cancellation: You can cancel your own registration for an event before the cancellation deadline. (Please check the event information for specific cancellation details.) If the event has a fee, refunds are possible only if cancellation is prior to the deadline. If you do not attend and do not cancel prior to an event, you are still responsible for payment and will be billed.

Special Accommodations: Please alert BrightWorks 2-3 weeks prior to the workshop/event if you need special accommodations, including sign language interpreters. (BrightWorks requires a notice of 2 business days to cancel a sign language interpreter. If you fail to cancel, we reserve the right to bill your school/district for this expense.) Update your profile as needed. Special accommodations are not included with each registration, but are stored in your profile until you make changes.
