Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH)
The LADSE DHH program serves students with hearing losses ranging from mild to profound. Students may have hearing loss as their only disability or they may have multiple disabilities. Placement within the LADSE Deaf and Hard of Hearing program is determined by each student’s educational plan and is individualized based upon goals developed by teachers, therapists, and other members of the school team in consultation with the parents.
The LADSE DHH program is located at Hinsdale South High School in Darien, IL and at the Transition Center in LaGrange Park, IL.
The LADSE Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program at Hinsdale South consists of the following programs and services. Students are appropriately placed based on academic ability in one or more of the programs we offer. A typical student will have a combination of various programs throughout their four years and will be provided with communication access per their IEP.
LADSE is the administrative agent for the high school and transition program within the regional Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program that provides services to students with hearing disabilities ages birth to twenty-one.
