Working Collaboratively to Support the Education of Students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
Established in 1978 by the Florida Legislature, the Resource Materials and Technology Center for the Deaf/Hard of Hearing (RMTC-D/HH) is a statewide discretionary project of the Florida Department of Education, Bureau of Exceptional Student Education (BESE) and functions as a statewide specialized center within the Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resources System (FDLRS) network. The Center is located on the campus of the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB). RMTC-D/HH serves as the coordinating unit for accessible materials including captioned and signed videos, professional development books, and other reference materials. In addition, RMTC-D/HH staff provide on-site training and technical assistance to all school districts, families, and other state and federal discretionary projects working with students who are deaf/hard of hearing.
