The state has created 9 special educational cooperatives across the Commonwealth. These cooperatives provide members with a variety of support to help districts meet the needs of their students. Each co-op has a consultant from the Kentucky School for the Deaf Outreach Department assigned to them. These consultants are available to help districts with all matters dealing with hearing loss and its impact on both the communication and the educational process. Below is a list of the cooperatives and the consultants assigned to them.
