VISIONARY LEADERS PROVIDING EXEMPLARY SERVICE TO 12 COUNTIES
Rosanne Douville exemplifies the Hearing Intervention Department. She is a leader and pioneer in the field of Audiology. Rosanne’s contributions to the Miami Valley are innumerable. She was the first Audiologist to utilize the MVRC Audio Booth and she has been an invaluable resource to our area school districts. Rosanne’s work has provided a much needed resource for thousands of students with disabilities for 42 years.
We serve students who are deaf or hard of hearing from age 3 to 21 enrolled in school programs. We provide services to students based on their IEP (Individualized Education Plan). Referrals for services must come from the local school district.
Each year, Hearing Intervention Services likes to bring students, interpreters and families together for an afternoon get-away. It is a time when everyone can relax and enjoy the day for social/cultural/lingual interaction in a comfortable environment. If you would like to know more about our field trips, please call (937) 236-9965.
