DHH & Special Education

Auditory Deaf/Hard Of Hearing Program

Melrose Avenue Elementary has four classes for  Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) students  ranging from Pre-K to Fifth Grade with the goal of mainstreaming students into general education classrooms with support when ready.  The DHH teachers use Listening and Spoken Language Methodology to instruct the students with the goal of mainstreaming students into the general education classrooms.  Students participate in the general education classroom as appropriate based on individual needs.  A strong emphasis is placed on the use of hearing technology such as hearing aids and cochlear implants in order for the students to access the Common Core curriculum through listening.
