Students who have are deaf or have permanent or fluctuating hearing impairment which adversely affects educational performance, restricting ability to hear and communicate verbally, are able to work with specially trained teachers. Many of the students have hearing aids, cochlear implants or assistive devices.
Instructional services are provided in self-contained classrooms or itinerantly by special educators and certified teachers of the hearing impaired, who provide instruction and consultation with classroom teachers, as well as training in sign language. The teachers of the hearing impaired work closely with audiologists, orientation and mobility specialists and other professionals to ensure that appropriate assistive technology and supplementary aides and services are in place so the students can participate in general education with their peers, to the maximum extent possible.
