Deaf / Hard of Hearing

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA '97) defines two terms related to hearing acuity: Deafness and Hearing Impairment. According to IDEA '97:

  • Deafness means a hearing impairment that is so severe that the child is impaired in processing linguistic information through hearing, with or without amplification, that it adversely affects a child's educational performance.
  • Hearing impairment means an impairment in hearing, whether permanent or fluctuating, that adversely affects a child's educational performance but that is not included under the definition of deafness.
