Frequently Asked Questions
Do the Minnesota Low Incidence Projects provide direct services to students with low incidence disabilities?
No. The Projects provide technical assistance to mainly school districts but sometimes, as in the case of the Minnesota DeafBlind Technical Assistance Project, to families. The Projects also provide training and various support systems to educators who work with children and youth with low incidence disabilities.
How are the Minnesota Low Incidence Projects different from the Regional Low Incidence Projects (RLIF)?
The Metro Regional Low Incidence Projects (RLIF) works solely in Region 11 which encompasses the Twin Cities and surrounding communities. The Minnesota Low Incidence Projects have a statewide focus, providing technical assistance and training to educators in all regions of the state, including Region 11.
