Collaboration

Alabama's Deaf and Blind Services (DBS) is implementing and further developing a comprehensive approach to leverage resources, including: a statewide collaborative network involving Area Agencies on Aging, Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB) regional offices, senior centers and centers for independent living as part of the Older Alabamians System of Information and Services (OASIS) "center-based" service provision model; cooperative agreement with AIDB involving shared office space, shared rehabilitation teachers and orientation and mobility specialists and other collaboration; underserved populations outreach strategies involving community rehabilitation programs and other community organizations; and close collaboration among VR and IL specialists through DSB's "joint service" staffing model.
