Hearing Impaired Support

Students residing in the Norwin School District, with an identified hearing loss, may be eligible for hearing support services. Parents, who suspect that their child has a hearing loss, must provide an audiological report from a clinical audiologist to the school district. The hearing support teacher would then determine if the hearing loss was significant enough to warrant an educational evaluation. In order to assure appropriate hearing support programming for these students, there are several areas in which the hearing support teacher would consider. Eligibility and level of hearing support would be contingent upon: age at which hearing loss was identified; severity of hearing loss; presence of additional disabilities; hearing aid history; social-emotional development; and educational performance.
