Deaf and Hard of Hearing
The SASED Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program serves students with identified hearing losses from the 92 member school districts of DuPage/West Cook Regional Association. The Early Childhood through 8th grade classrooms are located in several schools throughout the SASED member districts in DuPage County. Using a Total Communication philosophy, traditional and modified academic content is taught with an emphasis on language development. A wide variety of communication methods are utilized. Oral communication or speech, written communication and manual communication through the use of conceptually accurate signed English, are all used to assist students as they fill in the language and vocabulary gaps caused by their hearing loss.
Program Age Range: Pre-School to 8th Grade
Students are determined to be eligible for the SASED Deaf and Hard of Hearing program through the IEP process in their home districts. SASED programs are just one option in the continuum of supports, services and placements available to meet a student’s needs.
