Hearing Services

The professionals involved in providing services are an Itinerant Teacher of the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing and an Educational Audiologist of the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing. The goal of these professionals is to provide hearing disabled pupils with remediation, assistive devices and accommodations that will enhance their academic, communication and social skills. It also enables them to function maximally in the regular classroom. They guide students/teachers in the appropriate operation of all specialized equipment and regularly check the working condition of such equipment.


Students identified with hearing loss can have an audiogram completed regularly by the Educational Audiologist at no charge to the family.


Providers will foster understanding and acceptance of hearing-impaired pupils among administrators, teachers, peers and parents. These services may be delivered through direct services and/or consultative services. The teacher of the D/H.H. may implement activities that develop social skills and inform parents of opportunities to interact with other D/H.H. peers and adults. All providers work to prepare students for independent living and inform families of transition programs that may be available through the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind or the local school district, if deemed appropriate through the IEP process.
