Welcome to 2020-2021 School Year!

We hope that everyone had a safe and pleasant summer.  First off, it is our great pleasure to welcome a new arrival – baby boy Tal. Congratulations Alana and family!
Alana will be away on maternity leave until January 2021.

Next, we are pleased to share some exciting upcoming events POPDHH has in store this fall:

  • ASL online – the classes for students and EAs, and ASL office hours will resume in the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye on for the info and registration links.

Accessibility, Face Masks and PPE in Classrooms

What to consider? Masks with the best visual access may not provide the best auditory access, so please choose carefully to meet each student’s individual needs. Evaluate access in different environments with different PPE, and work together with the audiologist to ensure that listening devices are being utilized effectively.
