New Jersey's Specialized Child Study Teams
Evaluation Services for Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing Children
The New Jersey School for the Deaf
Partnerships for Children with Hearing Loss
Services are provided by personnel who have expertise in evaluating children with hearing loss. Appropriate assessment data is critical to Individual Educational Plan development. Therefore, during the evaluation process the Specialized Child Study Teams are committed to obtaining the most accurate diagnostic information possible about each student. This information is utilized by the student’s Local Education Agency to define and choose placement options which ensure that instruction and related services provide a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment.
