An inside look at the failing Deaf program, as well as the consequences of long term damage from the Least Restrictive Environment Mandate. The focus is on several deaf students, and 'Emma', a star character for the need of L.R.E. mandate reform.
Real life situational cases were observed and several problematic issues, especially within the public school system and their inclusive program, were addressed.
«A tip for primary caretakers: I.D.E.A. favors the whole placement of a child, rather than the educational aspect for the child alone. To maximize deaf children’s education, apply the law section 504 and register A.S.L. as the students’ primary language on the I.E.P. This clause will force the school to hire certified and educated A.S.L. interpreters.»
