Center Based Programs - Hearing Impaired (HI)
The Total Communication Program is committed to teach students to develop oral and manual (sign language and fingerspelling) communication skills, as well as auditory skills, utilizing all forms of communication. Students develop skills that allow them to communicate comfortably and effectively in any discourse.
Students are supported in the mainstream with interpreters, speech therapists, and other specialists as needed. They also go to a Deaf/Hard of Hearing teacher for specialized teaching for some subjects.
Students also participate in CBI (community-based instruction) to increase their vocabulary and to learn to function in a hearing world.
