Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) Services provides support to school districts and EI/ECSE providers. Our program is based on the premise that when families receive intensive and appropriate support during their child’s early years, family members are more effectively able to mobilize their child
throughout the entire educational process. We believe that children advance to the best of their individual abilities when their emerging sign language, speaking and listening skills are reinforced in a context of acceptance and respect.
The DHH team works with each family to develop a specific program that best meets the needs of both the child and the family.
