Since I am a mainstreamed oral deaf woman with CI's, I went to school just fine without a hearing dog as many of others had done so before me. I have a hard time seeing how a hearing dog would be beneficial to his education. I am gong to make an assumption since that I read he has sign language interpretor that the school has one interpretor for him for the entire day.

Then the MONEY!? Are you kidding me? That is an absolute ridiculous amount of money. I would love to see a copy of the complaint that was filed with the Human Rights Commission of Nassau County. It is public record now.
