Deaf and Hard of Hearing

The SASED Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program serves students with identified hearing loss 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. 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. SASED has total communication classrooms (classrooms using sign language and spoken language) and auditory/oral classrooms (classrooms relying on spoken language and listening).

Program Age Range: Pre-School to 8th Grade
