Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program (DHH)
Additional support may be available through cooperative consultation services or a varying exceptionalities classroom. When needed, amplification systems are available to support the classroom listening environment. Lake County students who require more intensive services may be eligible to attend Deaf or Hard of Hearing classes in Orange County. Lake County Schools will provide transportation if that placement is appropriate.
For a student to be eligible for services in this program, a hearing loss must be documented on a current audiogram by a certified audiologist and there must be a delay in the area of academics, language, or social skills. Each student must have an audiological exam at least every three years, which may include recommendations from the audiologist concerning the best methods of instruction of the student.
