Values

Student-Centered: We support and foster the development of the whole child, including physical, intellectual, social and emotional abilities.

Diversity: We embrace the diverse needs of the student and their families, respecting varied communication styles and preferences, family dynamics, cultures, creeds, religious preferences, identity, race, and ethnicities.

Service: We strive to serve as a first point of contact for families, service providers, and the community, providing a complete spectrum of resources, supports and services, with expertise in the field of deafness.

Excellence: We pursue excellence, using evidence-based practices, provided by experts in the field of hearing loss.

Collaboration: We work in partnership with parents, school districts, service providers, and other hearing loss-related entities, organizations and agencies, as well as programs within WESP-DHH to ensure seamless provision of services in a timely manner.
