Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Welcome to the DHH Department!

The Edmonds School District's Regional Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program pursues excellence for students in Deaf Education through visually accessible learning environments that promote literacy, problem solving skills, and academic and social growth in the least restrictive environment (LRE). 
Staff empower students to develop their intellectual, social and emotional potential to the fullest in order to function as a contributing member of today’s society. 

The program has Teachers of the Deaf working alongside highly trained para-educators providing American Sign Language, English and technological literacy with total dedication to the students.  Additionally, this program provides support services staff (Speech Language Pathologist, Counselor, Psychologist, and Audiologist) trained in the field of Deafness.

Students engage in brave learning environments that are designed to encourage equity and respect, utilizing a rigorous curriculum that meets the needs of the Common Core State Standards. The Edmonds School District's Regional Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program is committed to on-going partnerships with families, communities and partnering school districts.

The DHH team will assist students in developing their Deaf identity, empowering them to navigate the hearing world and how to self-advocate for accessibility.
