The Brazoria-Fort Bend Regional Day School Program for the Deaf
The Brazoria-Fort Bend Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) has been established through a shared service arrangement between eleven (11) neighboring school districts within Fort Bend county, Brazoria county, and southwest Harris county. The member school districts are: Alief, Angleton, Brazosport, Columbia- Brazoria, Damon, Danbury, Fort Bend, Lamar Consolidated, Needville, Stafford, and Sweeny.
Developing our students to be the best readers, writers, and communicators that they can be.
The Brazoria-Fort Bend RDSPD recognizes the importance of the development of age-appropriate communication and language skills for a child’s academic, social, cognitive, and linguistic development, as well as mental and physical well-being. Communication assessments are used in order to support maximum linguistic development for each student. Communication strategies such as listening, oral, signed English, spoken language, reading, writing, fingerspelling, gesture, pantomime, and body language are used to provide each student access to English instruction. Students who utilize American Sign Language as a first language are instructed through a Total Communication philosophy, utilizing Manually Coded English sign language for literacy development with conceptual/ASL sign support to enhance comprehension.
RDSPD Parent Empowerment Classes:
One of our greatest goals as a program is to strengthen the partnerships we have with our parents and to empower you all as we work together to support our children. The Brazoria-Fort Bend Regional Day School Program for the Deaf is thrilled to announce a 6-part virtual Parent Empowerment teaching series. These classes will give you the tools, resources, and training you need to fully participate in the ARD process for your Deaf/Hard of Hearing child. Please see the attached flyers for more information about the classes. If you will need an interpreter (either Spanish or Sign Language), we encourage you to email the presenter, Dana Walker at email@example.com, 5 days prior to the class. We are looking forward to this opportunity!
