Deaf and Hard of Hearing Resources

A student who is deaf is one who exhibits a hearing loss so severe that the student is impaired in processing linguistic information through hearing, with or without amplification, which adversely affects a student’s educational performance.  This student relies primarily on vision to access spoken communication.

A student who is hard of hearing is one who exhibits a hearing loss, whether permanent or fluctuating, that adversely affects a student’s educational performance but that is not included under the definition of deafness.  This student  relies primarily on hearing to access spoken communication.
