The Irving Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) was established in 1975. The teachers are all certified teachers of the deaf.
Students who receive services from the RDSPD are those who qualify as auditorally-impaired and whose hearing loss interferes with processing linguistic information. A student's educational performance must be adversely affected by the hearing loss, giving him or her the need for educational assistance. A student (age birth to 22 years) is determined eligible for the RDSPD by the local Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) committee.
The RDSPD in Irving provides services for students with hearing impairments who live within Irving, Grand Prairie, and Duncanville school districts.
