The Department has continued funding the Missouri Deaf Educator Community of Practice (CoP). This on-line community of practice is an innovative way to connect professionals serving deaf and hard of hearing children in Missouri to receive peer support and resources. The CoP website includes:

The CoP is a work in progress and is a dynamic resource, depending on participation to be successful.
