This checklist of recommended practices helps teachers provide an optimal environment and plan informed and meaningful observations for the DRDP (2015) for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The checklist corresponds with the Guidance for Assessing Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
Learn how DRDP (2015) data goes back to teachers and administrators for program planning, and about the path the data takes for federal reporting.
This guide assists teachers and service providers conduct informed and meaningful DRDP (2015) assessments of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) by better understanding:
- The communication needs of children who are DHH;
- How an individual child’s hearing loss and communication modes influence the child’s behaviors, interactions, and learning; and
- How to provide an appropriate learning environment that leads to a more accurate assessment of children’s knowledge, behaviors, and skills
