ASK Angie ASL – Communication Plan
“IDEA 2004 Section 300.324
- The IEP team must consider the communication needs of the child.
- In the case of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing, the IEP team must consider:
Opportunities for direct communication with peers and professional personnel in the child’s language and communication mode.
Academic level and full range of needs including opportunities for direct instruction in the child’s language and communication mode.
Although it is not required, those with a hearing loss and a 504 plan could also benefit from this plan.
The first deaf player on offense in NFL history.
“The biggest thing is this: to have no excuses in anything you do and I’m not talking about just the hearing impaired, but everybody. If there’s something you truly want to do, you’ll find a way to do it. It’s not going to be easy; it’s going to take a long time and it’s going to be hard. Believe in your dream, and if you don’t get to your dream, make sure you’ve done everything you can to get there. Nobody’s perfect and everybody has something to overcome. Everybody still has the opportunity to do what they want to do. “
~Derrick Coleman, Seahawks Fullback
