The District Deaf/Hard Hearing (D/HH) Program is provided to maximize a student's participation in the general education core curriculum, by providing academic support, auditory training and collaboration with the student's teachers, outside providers, and family.
Students who qualify for the service have a current audiology evaluation demonstrating their hearing loss, make it difficult to understand spoken language, and adversely affect their access to the auditory curriculum. They may have a documented hearing loss or deafness in one or both ears, have cochlear implants, wear hearing aids, and/or use FM systems. They are aural/oral communicators (communicate through hearing and speaking).
Services are provided in the school of attendance during the school day, and average 50-100 minutes per week. Students are seen on an individual basis. Assessment and goals are developed through annual Individual
Education Programs (IEPs) in collaboration with students, parents and school site personnel.
