Jeanne Lavelle of Fairfax, with the assistance of interpreter Jessica Holt, addresses the Fairfax delegation to the General Assembly. Lavelle advocated for funding to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired children are not left “functionally illiterate” because they are not given the opportunity to learn language skills. “Many deaf kids leave high school with third and fourth grade literacy abilities … and not because they are not bright,” Lavelle testified.

Jeanne Lavelle is focusing on the very important point to educate the hearing impaired students but website provide me good info. There are not proper high schools for them only they get education at primary level. She is emphasizing to educate the deaf students.

In these program topics like concerns for the environment and climate change impact, with many arguing for renewable energy sources tec are included. why is my computer so slow
