 Article of Interest - Education Issues

The Education of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children

from the American Society for Deaf Children, January 28, 2003
For more articles visit www.bridges4kids.org


What do you think about the education deaf and hard of children are
receiving? How about the education your deaf or hard of hearing child
is receiving? Are your child's language and communication needs being
met?

What about your child's academic needs? Does your family receive the
kind of services you need - such as sign language classes - to help
your child progress in school? Does your school system offer the kinds of
supports, services, and placements that are necessary - or do you find
yourself in the position of having to educate school district
personnel?

Congress is accepting comments from parents, educators, and other
interested individuals on the reauthorization of the Individuals with
Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Congressional staff say they have
not heard from many parents or educators on behalf of deaf and hard of
hearing children around the country. When Congress doesn't hear
anything, they think everything is okay. But ASDC hears from
frustrated parents all the time! Let Congress know where the problems are, and
suggest possible solutions. You don't have to have all the answers,
but you are the expert on your child and family, and Congress needs your
input in order to craft a better law.

Please visit the web site of the House Education and the Workforce
Committee at

http://edworkforce.house.gov/ 

and let the Committee know what you think. It will only take a few
moments. Please e-mail me a copy of your comments at
braimondo@deafchildren.org, and contact me with any questions. Also,
feel free to forward this to others who may be interested.

If you want to see improvements in your child's education, the place to
start is with the law that governs it. Please forward your comments to
Congress today.
