Video Outreach Project - The Shared Reading Video Outreach Project (SRVOP) is
an adaptation of the Shared Reading Project model developed by
David R. Schleper of Gallaudet University's Clerc Center. The program
makes used of an educational telecommunications system called the
K-20 Network, that provides both internet access and live interactive
videoconferencing capability to more than 300 school districts,
colleges and universities across the state of Washington.
SRVOP uses videoconferencing
systems located in local school districts and Educational Service
Districts to offer a reading enhancement program to deaf children,
their families and educators. For the first time, isolated deaf
children living in remote areas, as well as their parents, other
family members and teachers, can see, interact with and learn from
skilled Deaf adults and from other deaf children.
The program originates
at Puget Sound Educational Service District (PSESD), located near
Seattle, and is a division of the Washington School for the Deaf's
Outreach Department. Supplemental training and discussion groups
for educational staff, provided via live interactive videoconferencing,
are facilitated by a mentor teacher of the deaf throughout the
