Deaf & Hard of Hearing (D/HH)

Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing Services

Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (D/HH) have unique educational needs. The Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing 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, and provide support/guidance specific to assistive technology and FM systems. For children under the age of 3, D/HH teachers are also available to provide support and consultation to families in a home visit environment. 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.
