Deaf/Hard of Hearing Itinerant Services

MCOE operates an itinerant program for students with hearing impairment that even with correction, adversely affects their educational performance.  When assessment determines that a student has educational needs that cannot be met without special education and related services, this student is provided with instruction, specialized services and materials and equipment in accordance with his or her IEP. The term hearing impaired includes both deaf students and hard of hearing students.  While students with hearing impairments require instruction in all areas of the California Common Core Curriculum, they may also need specialized instruction in the Expanded Core Curriculum which includes : compensatory skills, social interaction skills, independent living skills, recreation and leisure skills, career education, use of assistive technology, sensory efficiency skills and self determination. Services are provided by a credentialed teacher of the hearing impaired to students with a qualifying hearing impairment from birth to high school graduation or age 22, whichever comes first. Students are served in their general or special education classroom and services are provided on the school campus and in the community.
