Deaf and Hard of Hearing

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing program provides support to teachers, assistants, interpreters, and administrators from the four Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD) and individual districts in order to improve outcomes for students who have been identified as deaf or hard of hearing. 


  • Evidence-based professional development 

  • Consultative/professional assistance 

  • Access to the Nontraditional Deaf Education Certification program, a collaboration between Texas Tech University and the ESCs, designed to increase the number of qualified, certified teachers serving students who are deaf and hard of hearing in Texas
