Communication Plan for a Child Who Is Deaf or Hard of Hearing (Annotated) - School Age
Effective Date:October 8, 2008 | Topics:
The primary purpose of the Communication Plan is to establish discussion among all IEP team members who review the student’s needs based on communication skills and access. The Communication Plan should be the starting point for the IEP, and the results of this discussion should be used to identify the student’s present educational levels as well as to complete other sections of the IEP. The Annotated Communication Plan was revised in December 2010. Changes have been made to the following areas: annotation added for Section I, question 5; to Section III concerning the definition of qualified interpreters, and to the glossary to include definitions of qualified interpreters and communication modes and assistive technology devices and services for students who are deafblind. The revised version has December 2010 in the footer.
