Language Standards Being Developed For Hard Of Hearing Children

For the first time, Missouri will develop language standards for pre-kindergarten children who are deaf or hard of hearing. State Senator Greg Razer, a Democrat from Kansas City, sponsored the provisions that become law next month. In an effort to better communicate with others, parents will be able to monitor and track milestones in the language development of their child with hearing disabilities.

Razer says there was push back on the bill only being based in English, but he says there may be some work down the road to include other languages.
