Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program (DHH)
Students with a hearing loss may be eligible for services through the Deaf or Hard of Hearing program. The goal of this program is to provide each student with individualized instruction in language development and academic skills. Teachers trained to work with deaf and hard of hearing students travel to the schools to instruct students for a specific number of hours per week.
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.
