Deaf Education is a service and support option on a continuum designed to meet the diverse needs of students with deafness or hearing loss commonly referred to as an auditory impairment. The focus is instruction and training in the communication and language skills essential for educational and vocational progress. The components of the services include a number of hierarchical stages which establish and ultimately transfer newly acquired communication and language skills to all aspects of the student’s educational setting.

Located on general education campuses, the Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) supports students who are severely auditorily impaired by offering individualized small group instruction and interpreter assistance in general education and special education classes.
