Deaf Program

Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH) Program

During Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT) conferences, families looked at academic standards, reviewed their child's progress, learned activities to develop skills, and set goals for success. An integral part of these meetings is building ASL skills. Parents and guardians enjoyed practising how to count in American Sign Language (ASL). Below is a video that reviews counting from 1-30 in ASL.


Site-based Elementary Deaf/Hard of Hearing Program @ Four Seasons

Saint Paul Public Schools has a center-based deaf/hard of hearing (DHH) program for ages 3 through 5th grade.  Our focus is on language access and acquisition for students through a total communication model.  This means that our students have access to both signed and spoken language at school.  Our goal is not one modality; our goal is language!

Our students have access to instruction through specialized DHH classrooms, pull-out services, and push-in support in general education, as well as a classroom for deaf+/deaf-disabled students.  Our goal is to support students' language, academic skills, social-emotional growth, and identity development by creating a community of DHH learners.

Individual students needs are at the center of what we do.  We have a multi-disciplinary team to provide supports and services, include speech/language therapy, OT, PT, nursing, DAPE, social work, audiology, and more!
