And there's a problem with mainstream education for the deaf right there. The fact that it is lomped in with special education services. That allows for modification of the curiiculam,a nd it is not modification of the curriulum that deaf students need, it is modification of methodology. Modification f curriculum results in exactly the undereducation of bright capable students that we see on a widespread basis, and perpetuates the widely held belief by mainstream educators that deaf students are less intellectually capable than their hearing peers.
Exactly what accommodations were provided for your daughter? Pulling out of class for speech and language therapy? Separate instruction for langauge arts? Preferential seating?
