The Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education (CDHHE) was established in 2012 with the purpose “to support parental choice, including the full continuum of communication options (including American sign language, other forms of sign language, cued speech, listening and spoken language (oral), or any combination of these skills)” and with the goal “to ensure that children who are deaf and children who are hard of hearing acquire optimal language skills and academic abilities, regardless of the mode of communication used” (IC 20-35-11).
