Deaf and Hard of Hearing - DHH
Who Are We?
We are itinerant teachers who provide consultation, direct service to students, staff training, and resources for parents and staff. We focus our teaching on language development, communication, and compensatory skills.
Program criteria requires a documented hearing loss and an educational need, communication need, or a social need. We use the DHH criteria checklist.
Usually a child is identified through the Universal Newborn Screening Process completed at the hospital before the baby is released. If the child fails the initial screening and the follow-up hearing recheck, the hospital or clinic refers the child for special education services.
