Deaf & Hard of Hearing (D/HH) Evaluation Services (including Audiology Evaluation)

To provide optimum learning opportunities, school teams need information about all aspects of the student’s educational needs in order to identify and provide appropriate instruction and supports. The diagnosticians on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Diagnostic Team provide consultation, evaluation, and interpretation of assessment results to help school teams better understand the impact of the hearing loss on the student’s academic, cognitive, functional, communicative, and social-emotional development.
