A nearby private Catholic high school is seeking ideas and suggestions which might affect the plans for a new high school they are going to build.

Since we may be sending our 2 year old there in years to come and since his hearing unaided is at about 90-100 dB in the 1000-4000 Hz range (not exactly sure yet what his aided level is), we would like to forward on suggestions and ideas that can be considered in the design of the high school that would make the best hearing and learning environment for him or others like him.

We would appreciate suggestions on this topic. If possible, please cite references to any relevant publications.

Thanks.

Congratulations on getting the school your child will attend to attend to his/her needs in the planning!! I recommend you get a copy of "Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students Educational Services Guidelines" published in 1995 by National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE). The document covers all aspects of school programs for deaf and hard of hearing students and was written by representatives from a broad consortium of National Organizations serving deaf and hard of hearing students. Guidelines for all aspects of the program as well as lists of references are included.

This is an excellent resource for all types of programs and should be on the shelf in every school serving deaf children.

The book can be obtained by sending a check for $10 payable to NASDSE to:
