Annual Child Count of Children and Youth with Combined Vision and Hearing Loss
This page contains instructions for updating the records of students who are already registered with GSAP.
This expanded December 1 count is federally required by OSEP and is used to identify national and state technical assistance needs for children and youth who are deaf-blind, their families, services providers, and the systems which serve them. The Office of Special Education Programs encourages state and local districts to support the collection of this Child Count data. Please read the Dear Colleague Letter from OSEP.
Educators are required to update students’ records every year on December 1; however, you are encouraged to update records any time there is a change for the student.
