Welcome from the Principal

Greetings to Families, Staff, and Community!
 
We would like to welcome you to our brand new CDDHH Program webpage - this will be under construction throughout the Spring, but know that our goal is to provide you with a rich and beneficial set of resources, information, ideas, and celebrations about our program.
 
As always, the focus of both the CD and the DHH Programs is one of LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT - whether a student uses Sign or Spoken Language - and the language processing skills necessary to make sense of the world.  These programs have both existed for more than 30 years as separate entities.  We are partners now - each part of the program retains unique characteristics, but there is more that unites than divides.  
 
Ultimately, we strive to enrich students' language and thinking skills in order to access grade level instruction and concepts and build strategies for a lifetime of success!  We thank you for the honor of teaching your child every day.
 
Welcome, and we hope as we build this site that it offers you important information.  Please send any webpage suggestions to me at shannon.horton@echoja.org.
 
Educationally Yours,
 
Shannon C. Horton
CDDHH Principal
