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.

Using the DRDP (2015) with Children Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

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:

  1. The communication needs of children who are DHH;
  2. How an individual child’s hearing loss and communication modes influence the child’s behaviors, interactions, and learning; and
  3. How to provide an appropriate learning environment that leads to a more accurate assessment of children’s knowledge, behaviors, and skills

DRDP (2015) Updates for Early Intervention and Preschool Special Education

The California Department of Education has released a compact preschool view of the DRDP (2015), the DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View, for general education and special education. Beginning fall 2016, the DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View must be used with preschoolers with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

The DRDP (2015) Infant/Toddler View Assessment Manual has a revised Introduction and Appendices, but no change to the measures.

Please download the new DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View Rating Record for use with preschool-age children with IEPs and the DRDP (2015) Special Education Information Page and discard the previous versions.
