As a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), I provide Direct and Consultative-Based Services to multiple districts. In order to better serve my students, their families and their districts, I always create detailed reports for Individualized Education Plan (IEP) Meetings. Administrators, Educators and Families are always appreciative of these reports, because it lists ALL my up-to-date service data and feedback as a service provider in one concise report. The Case Manager can then copy and paste my professional recommendations, as the DHH Teacher directly into their IEP Programs from the completed and submitted DHH Report.
In each DHH Report, I personalize each document to mirror my individual student's academic, behavioral and personal needs. I include the following information:
1. Annual or 3 Year Re-Evaluation Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) Report Title
2. 3 Year Re-Evaluation Due Date
3. District Name Listed
4. School Year Listed
5. Student Name
6. Grade Level
7. Campus Name
8. IEP End Date
9. List of Disabilities (Primary, Secondary, etc.)
10. Case Manager
11. Direct DHH Service Time (i.e., 2 x 30 Minutes, Per Week)
12. Consultative-Based DHH Service Time (i.e., 15 Minutes, Per Month)
13. Listing of Scheduled IEP Meeting Date, Time and Location in a statement
14. List of IEP Team Members and their individual roles listed
15. Current DHH IEP Goal(s) and Objectives
16. PLOP: Present Level of Performance (Listing information about students functional performance (accommodations) and current progress on IEP Goals and Objectives)
17. Recommended Accommodations List
18. Newly Projected DHH IEP Goal(s) and Objectives for next IEP
19. Statement projection of allotted DHH Services
20. Teacher of the Deaf Signature and Date of IEP Meeting written on bottom of first page of DHH Report
Once all this information has been completed, then I always print a copy for my own records, one for the parent and/or guardians, one for the school district and an extra copy, just in case one is needed. It's always better to be prepared! Just remember to sign and date ALL printed copies to make them official!
This document is a 4 page TEMPLATE with step-by-step directions on HOW to create a DETAILED and ORGANIZED DHH and/or Special Education IEP Report with YOUR Teacher progress notes in a Word Document Format.
I hope that you'll find this document as resourceful as I have in my career as a Teacher of the Deaf. It has definitely increased my effectiveness as an educator. It has also helped me to maintain organization. All DHH data is then found in a single document! It may take a while to compile the document, but it is well worth the time! Just you wait and see!
