Title of Collection: National Evaluation of the Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) Program: Grantee Questionnaire/Interview and State Survey Data Collection. OMB Control Number: 1850–NEW. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 3,702. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 927. Abstract: This data collection is Phase II of the National Evaluation of the TA&D Program and will focus on gathering relevant information on the State Deaf-Blind Projects funded under the OSEP Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) Program. Data will be obtained through three questionnaires. A State Deaf-Blind Project Questionnaire will be administered to all Project Directors and will yield detailed descriptive information about the technical assistance products and services provided by the TA&D Program grantees and to whom they provide them. A questionnaire administered to providers who are identified as those who work at least on a weekly basis with students aged 6–21 with deaf blindness will provide information concerning characteristics of these providers and their needs for technical assistance to support their work with students. A subset of these providers who have received child-specific technical assistance from a state deaf-blind project will receive a short set of additional questions about their experiences with the TA received, and their satisfaction with that support. This data collection will provide unique, detailed data and information that are not currently available from other sources but that are necessary in VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:26 Apr 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 order to accurately understand the role that the State Deaf-Blind Projects play in supporting local providers in their work with children and youth with deaf blindness. The National Evaluation of the TA&D Program is part of the National Assessment of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (hereafter referred to as the National Assessment). Failure to collect these data may result in the ED being unable to adequately report to Congress on the National Assessment. Dated: April 17, 2014.
