In 1992 the US Department of Education published guidance regarding the provision of appropriate educational services for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. This has been shared in the Federal Register and in DPI bulletin 92.13. The guidance in this document influenced federal language in IDEA 1997 and IDEA2004 related to special factors and the considerations for communication needs of students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Physical therapy is a related service provided to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education. School physical therapy focuses on a child's ability to move as independently as possible in the school environment. The school physical therapist evaluates the child's ability to move throughout the school and to participate in classroom activities.
Each spring since 2001, a survey has been sent to teachers of students who are deaf or hard of hearing requesting information about the students they work with. The information requested on this survey comes from questions often asked of DPI regarding students in the state that are not part of our current data collection system. The survey summary identifies the questions asked and responses received from teachers.
