In the meantime, we have spent much time researching the policies and procedures for this impending transition, and I thought I would share some helpful sites we have found when determining the appropriate placement for a child with hearing loss:
- Excellent information from the State Department of Health on appropriate education for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Special Education Laws and Operating Procedures
- LRE Clarifications
It is our hope that, after the completion of this tour, we will be able to select the most appropriate program for Drew, and that with the cooperation of our school district, we can move froward with the necessary evaluations and placement.
