How We Can Help
CESA 6 offer these services:
- Deaf/Hard of Hearing
Deaf / Hard of Hearing
The Deaf and Hard of Hearing program provides school districts and families with a range of services to address the academic and social needs of children with hearing loss. Teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing provide direct instruction to students, as well as collaboration with school personnel and parents regarding the impact of hearing loss on communication, overall development, social interactions and transition needs. Liaison case management services are available for students placed at the Wisconsin School for the Deaf in Delavan.
Educational audiologists serve as a communication bridge between medical/clinical professionals and school personnel to meet the hearing needs of students in the educational setting. Educational audiology services include screening the hearing of students who are difficult to test through school hearing programs, as well as monitoring the students’ personal hearing aids and fitting FM systems for students for whom amplification is deemed necessary to benefit from their special education programming.
