DEAF_HOH Smaller

Services for Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing are designed to prevent the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs among deaf and hard of hearing individuals, from kindergarten through 12th grade.

One out of ten hearing people may become dependent on drugs and alcohol, whereas one out of seven individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing may become dependent.
