About US

CAEDHH’s Statement of Values: 

 1. CAEDHH advocates optimal education for all students who are D/deaf or hard of hearing. In educational settings, this is ideally a placement in which the ability to achieve is equal to the possibility to achieve.

2. CAEDHH advocates the involvement of a qualified educator (CAEDHH-certified educator or equivalent) in any decision-making regarding the educational programming of students who are D/deaf or hard of hearing, including the birth-to-five age group.

3. CAEDHH advocates the hiring of trained teacher-specialists (CAEDHH-certified teachers or equivalent) as the most appropriate educational specialist personnel to work with school-age students who are D/deaf or hard of hearing. A CAEDHH certified teacher is also an essential member of the collaborative early intervention team that works with families of infants who are D/deaf or hard of hearing.

4. CAEDHH encourages the collaboration of members of all disciplines involved in the education of students who are D/deaf or hard of hearing.

5. CAEDHH recognizes the important role of parents and students in making educational placement decisions. Each student’s input into the decision-making process is valued and given increasing weight with the student’s maturity. The educator’s responsibility is to ensure that the family receives complete, evidence based, and unbiased information, in order to be able to make informed decisions.

6. CAEDHH holds no bias for or against any particular communication method, educational approach, or service delivery model in the education of students who are D/deaf or hard of hearing. A main goal of CAEDHH is for each student to be taught by a qualified educator in a way that best suits that student’s strengths and needs.

7. CAEDHH strongly advocates for qualified individuals who are D/deaf or hard of hearing to become specialist educators in this field. In addition, CAEDHH strongly advocates for individuals who are D/deaf or hard of hearing to become involved as role models throughout the education process.
