As a result of these efforts, the following assessment protocol for students who are deaf or hard of hearing in grades K-3 was established.

Assistive technology (AT) is sometimes seen as only meaning a device, such as a communication system, that is expensive and difficult to obtain and use, or something that a child may not be needed by a child who is under three years of age. But “high tech”, complex AT devices represent only a small portion of the assistive technology that may be used to help infants and toddlers to participate in activities and routines in their homes and in community settings.
