Katzenbach is the only Residential Program for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students in New Jersey. Our program is staffed by appropriately certified Deaf and Hearing personnel and delivers age and level appropriate activities for the students, four nights a week. The residential program is in operation Monday through Thursday nights.
An important component of the Residential Program is the Educational Resource Center that is open everyday. A Certified Teacher of the Deaf provides tutoring and guided study time. The residential staff closely coordinates long term projects and homework with the academic staff.
The consideration of a Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing student's direct communication needs is an important part in the development of the IEP. Day students can participate in recreational activities by the provision of a late bus, or residential placement for the length of the activity. The sending school district arranges the transportation.
