Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Deaf or hard of hearing students are entitled to equal access and an equal opportunity to participate in all public school services, programs, and activities.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires public school systems to provide a “free, appropriate public education” to children who need special education or related services because of a disability.

It is important to note that HAT is not appropriate for all students with hearing loss or auditory processing disorder. This is why we perform classroom observations and sound level measurements of each students’ learning environment in order to best understand their needs.
