Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing Services

The Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH) are available to each district to provide quality instruction and support for students ages birth to 21 who are deaf or hard of hearing. The Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing act as consultants to local school district personnel and hearing peers. The Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing also provide services throughout the assessment process, provide direct and indirect educational services, lead workshops regarding hearing and its educational impact, and provide support/guidance specific to assistive technology and FM systems. The Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing are here to support families, school staff, and students all the way through their hearing loss journey.  

Resources for Families

Did your baby have his/her hearing tested at birth? Take a look at this website to help you better understand newborn hearing screening.

If your child was recently identified with a hearing loss, the Minnesota Department of Health has a nice roadmap of the next steps to take. You can take a look at that here.

Another great program with a plethora of resources is Minnesota Hands and Voices. Minnesota Hands and Voices is a program ran by parents of children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing.
