Effective Communication for Students with Hearing, Vision, or Speech Disabilities in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools

Abstract

This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher presents a November 2014 introductory letter from the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Department of Education on the topic of Effective Communication for Students with Hearing, Vision, or Speech Disabilities in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools.  Students with disabilities, like all students, must be provided the opportunity to fully participate in our public schools. A critical aspect of participation is communication with others.  Below is a description of a document, entitled “Frequently Asked Questions on Effective Communication for Students with Hearing, Vision, or Speech Disabilities in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools” (FAQs), which explains the responsibility of public schools to ensure that communication with students with hearing, vision, or speech disabilities is as effective as communication with all other students. At the end of the letter, NASET has provided a link to the 30 page document for you to review.
