Deaf Education Initiatives

The steering committee of the Deaf Education Initiatives has been busy analyzing feedback and revising the draft of the Program Guidelines Document for educational services for deaf and hard of hearing students. A task force (approximately 60 individuals) was asked to review the draft and provide comments to the steering committee for revision. Several members of ACE-DHH were asked to participate as members of the task force to provide comments and suggestions on various chapters. During October an editor will begin assisting the steering committee as the final document is written. The guidelines document is scheduled for initial distribution during the Spring of 1994.

The next meeting of the steering committee is October 8-9 in Alexandria, Virginia at the headquarters of the National Association of State Directors of Special Education. If you would like more information about this project, please contact Marilyn Sass-Lehrer.
