A Co-enrollment Program in the Netherlands
Co-enrollment programs are a very promising educational option for deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children as they can effectively combine the advantages of programs in special and mainstream education (Kreimeyer, Crooke, Drye, Egbert, & Klein, 2000). During the last decade, a special and a mainstream school in the Netherlands initiated a co-enrollment program for DHH and hearing children. In order to evaluate this co-enrollment program, a research study was initiated in 2004. This study focused on (1) the social position of the DHH children, (2) the school achievements of the DHH and hearing children, (3) the DHH children’s proficiency in spoken Dutch and Sign Language of the Netherlands, and (4) the view of DHH and hearing children and their parents on the co-enrollment program. In this chapter, the initiation of the co-enrollment program and the results from the evaluation study are described and discussed.
