Deaf & Hard of Hearing (D/HH)

Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing Services

The Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing (D/HH) 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.
