Really: factoring the high cost of "deaf education" with the decrease persons requiring this specialized service? In the night high school was in recently_Danforth- there is a class for the deaf/hearing impaired. It has 5 now and will be closing in 2 years.
First of all,
in the night high school? what does that mean? Second of all, just b/c it's closing it doesn't mean that it's not still needed. If Canada is anything like the States educational placement is VERY political. Meaning the mainstream school REALLY wants the extra money that a disabled kid brings. But they don't nessarily want to provide appropreae services. They just want to provide minimal accomondations. They don't generally like to alert parents to dhh programs/schools, so in turn that means that many parents aren't aware of the option.
I actually even know of a hoh kid (just hoh) who is in a LIFE SKILLS (one of the programs for intellectucally disabled/autistic kids in high school) for high school.
