• The Deaf/Hard of Hearing (D/HH) itinerant program serves Gwinnett County students (P-12) who are found eligible for the D/HH program. To meet eligibility requirements students must have a hearing loss of 30dB or greater, in at least the better ear, that interferes with the acquisition of auditory skills necessary for the normal development of speech, language, and academic achievement. Based on students’ individual needs identified in their Individualized Education Program (IEP), D/HH itinerants support students in their least restrictive environment by providing direct or consultative services, which include: providing students with academic support in one-on-one or small group settings, serving as a liaison between students and staff in efforts of teaching students to self-advocate, consulting with teachers and staff in regards to students’ auditory needs, providing in-services to staff on hearing assistive technology (HAT), and teaching students how to insert and properly care for their personal hearing aids and HAT.
