TODHHs – Critical Resource

It is the position of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Division for Communicative Disabilities and Deafness (DCDD) that, for students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH), credentialed teachers of students who are DHH (TODHH) are critical to the provision of appropriate evaluation, educational programming and planning, and student-centered instruction.
They are essential to students’ achievement of their academic, linguistic, and social–emotional potential. As a part of the educational team, qualified TODHH enable schools to meet the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, 2006) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, as amended by the ADA Amendments Act, 2009), while also securing positive outcomes for students.
