Students Who Are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Deaf-Blind: Safety Checklist for IEP Teams

by Jane Freeman

A safe, secure, and supportive environment for each school and every child, is one of the goals set by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the event that school safety is compromised, it is important that schools have plans in place to convey information to all students and staff. Due to the unique nature of the communication needs of students who are deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind, it is suggested that individualized education program (IEP) teams use the following checklist to assure that students have full access to the language and implementation of those safety plans. This list is intended to guide discussions to determine needs and supports for students who are deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind during emergency situations. This checklist was developed by members of Educational Resources for Children with Hearing Loss (ERCHL).
