Ensuring access to a language-rich, multicultural education utilizing American Sign Language and English, providing individual instruction for students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, while supporting students, families, professionals, and surrounding communities.
Mesquite RDSPD provides a full continuum of services based upon each student’s individual needs as determined by assessment and the ARD committee. Services may include:
Parent/Infant (0-3 year old) services are provided through Mesquite ISD and the Early Childhood Intervention Program (ECI) that serves the location of the family’s residence. These services are provided in the family’s home.
Services are available for early childhood through high school (ages 3-22) in centralized classrooms on a regular education campus for intensive instruction. The type of services the student receives are based upon each student’s individual needs. Centralized campuses include JH Florence Elementary, Vanston Middle School and North Mesquite High School.
Itinerant teachers of the deaf provide support to students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing enrolled in general education or basic special education programs on their home school campus.
We operate with a core set of beliefs built around our commitment that each student GROWS through Relationships, Opportunities, Worth and Success!
Mesquite RDSPD will:
- Grow students by creating a learning environment that supports the students’ social-emotional and cognitive well-being.
Grow relationships by partnering with students, families, professionals, and surrounding communities.
Grow worth by empowering and supporting students’ positive self-identities and providing the tools needed to navigate life as a Deaf individual.
Grow success by ensuring graduates are provided the knowledge and practical skills to accomplish their personal and professional goals.
