Utah School for the deaf and blind take the classroom to State Capitol
SALT LAKE CITY —
(KUTV)- Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind brought the classroom to the capitol to show legislators how much their support helps deaf, hard of hearing, blind, deaf-blind, and visually impaired children.
Thursday, teachers of the deaf thanked the Senate and House floor with their students in action.
"Utah is one of the few states in the country that provides services to students across the entire state. Our state is also unique because Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind teach students more than the academic curriculum, the schools and programs teach life skills that are personalized to support their specific, unique needs," the spokesperson for Utah Schools for the Deaf said.
"These skills can empower kids and families. Our motto is to help children realize their individual potential in education, community, social lives, and future careers."
Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (USDB) educate students who are Deaf, Blind, or Deaf-Blind so they can achieve their full academic, social, and career potential. USDB leads the way as a national model in providing the most responsive, caring, and innovative approach possible to meet the educational needs of our students.
