Well even the early grades are good. Not just EI. That's the way it is at almost all deaf schools, the EI, preschool and kindy, first and second grades are decent. But then you get the kids (some of whom are ORAL) who transfer in from the mainstream. But yes, I'm so stoked about RMDS.......You are so right sorry. My ASL professor actually works for CSDB. She is an ECE home coordinator and works with kiddos and their families from birth to age 3 from Arapahoe County. I can't begin to tell you how great she is.
I grew up in the mountains so there was no Deaf program there. Even when I moved to the Denver area with my mom our program was so small, it was TC and really disjointed. That was one of the better programs in the state too! Now theres RMDS which is the charter school in JeffCo where I was. I cant count the times I've wished I was younger so I could have gone there!!! :-p
