Mission, Vision, Values
To provide comprehensive education and support services to all Wisconsin children who are deaf, hard of hearing and deafblind, their families and their service providers.
The programs of WESP-DHH utilize evidence-based practices and seamless supports, services and resources to enable all children to achieve their maximum academic, social and emotional potential in their respective environments.
Student-Centered: We support and foster the development of the whole child, including physical, intellectual, social and emotional abilities.
Diversity: We embrace the diverse needs of the student and their families, respecting varied communication styles and preferences, family dynamics, cultures, creeds, religious preferences, identity, race, and ethnicities.
Service: We strive to serve as a first point of contact for families, service providers, and the community, providing a complete spectrum of resources, supports and services, with expertise in the field of deafness.
Excellence: We pursue excellence, using evidence-based practices, provided by experts in the field of hearing loss.
Collaboration: We work in partnership with parents, school districts, service providers, and other hearing loss-related entities, organizations and agencies, as well as programs within WESP-DHH to ensure seamless provision of services in a timely manner.
