The educational team at the student’s local educational agency (LEA)/school work together to determine the needs of each student who is deaf or hard of hearing and to compose a program to best meet those needs. Families and students are an integral part of the team. Educational teams may use an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 plan to meet the educational needs of the d/hh student. The Communication Plan is the first part of the IEP document. For more information on the difference between IEP and 504 plans, please visit this resource, 504 or IEP? http://www.pattan.net/Videos/Browse/Single/?code_name=504_or_ie
