Under federal law, families with children who have a "disability" are eligible for an array of services to help meet the child's educational needs. Families may begin the process as soon as the child is identified, starting at birth. In order to qualify for special education services, being deaf or hard of hearing is considered a disability. Please see the below to learn more about age specific services.
