The Texas 2 STEPS Evaluation Tool was assessed for face validity. Thirty Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialists (COMS) piloted the tool while evaluating children under the age of five years. Each participant was asked to evaluate their comfort level working with this population and report the number of years’ experience they have working as a COMS. The majority of participants found the tool useful for assessing orientation and mobility (O&M) skills in children. The Texas 2

Skrjabingylus chitwoodorum has shown a high prevalence in Texas within the host species, M. mephitis. Hughes et al. (2018) examined 595 striped skunks from Texas and extracted nematodes directly from the sinuses of 48.7% of them. The authors concluded that S. chitwoodorum had a bias for the left sinus and also that ecoregion and precipitation was not a determining factor of prevalence. However, Higdon and Gompper (2020) concluded after examining 578 skulls of

Alloimmunization to red blood cell antigens is seen in patients receiving chronic blood transfusion. Knowing the prevalence of blood group antigens of the different ethnicities of South Texas donors can provide better management of rare blood inventory for patients in this geographical area. A total of 4369 blood donors were tested and analyzed for various antigens in the following blood group systems: ABO, Rh, Kell, Duffy, Kidd, MNS, Lutheran, Dombrock, Landsteiner-Wiener, Diego, Colton, and

These same two species are reported as the predominate Meloidogyne spp. associated with golf course bermudagrass in North and South Carolina (Zeng et al., 2012; Ye et al., 2015), Texas (Faske and Starr, 2009), and California and Hawaii (McClure et al., 2012).

Orientation & Mobility Visual Impairment Scale of Service Intensity of Texas (O&M VISSIT) believe that to bring about real change in the O&M profession and in the lives of students with vision impairment, these external factors like Cmar et al.’s (2015) example of availability of resources, should not be involved in determining intensity of services. Rather, this decision should be drawn solely from the student evaluation data. These data should also address aspects of the expanded core curriculum (ECC
