Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Students who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) may require support to access the general education curriculum.

Service delivery may include:

  • Instruction in auditory skills, language development, and self advocacy
  • Consultation with educational staff and families regarding accommodations and hearing assistive technology
  • Training and support regarding use of hearing assistive technology
  • Evaluation for eligibility in collaboration with local district staff
