Issue #28: Hearing Impairment: An Overview

The March issue of NASET's Educating Children with Severe Disabilities series will cover the following topic:

Hearing Impairments: An Overview

The Education of the Handicapped Act (P.L. 94-142), includes "hearing impairment" and "deafness" as two of the categories under which children with disabilities may be eligible for special education and related services programming. While the term "hearing impairment" is often used generically to describe a wide range of hearing losses, including deafness, the regulations for IDEA define hearing loss and deafness separately.
