10.16.3014 CRITERIA FOR IDENTIFICATION OF STUDENT AS HAVING DEAFNESS
(1) The student may be identified as having deafness if an audiological report documents that hearing loss is so severe that the student is impaired in processing linguistic information, with or without amplification, to the extent that prevents the auditory channel from being the primary mode of learning speech and language.
(2) The student's educational performance is adversely affected as documented by specific examples. The results and analysis of a current assessment of language development as measured by standardized tests or professionally recognized scales appropriate to age level and administered individually is required to show an impairment in processing linguistic information prior to identification.
