Can a student who is deaf/hard of hearing take their school-provided hearing assistive technology (e.g. FM system, hearing aids, etc.) home?
Florida’s Technical Assistance Paper (TAP) for Assistive Technology answer to question: “Can a student take an assistive technology device home?” (G-1) states:
This is determined on an individual basis and specified on the IEP. If the student requires assistive technology to complete homework assignments or practice skills that require the device such as communication or socialization, it should be written into the IEP. Not all assistive technology may be required for home use.
Supporting Success for Children With Hearing Loss has an article titled Schools Purchasing Hearing Aids for Students that may also have helpful information.
