Diagnostic and Support Team
for Students with Hearing Loss and/or Vision Loss

The Diagnostic and Support Team for Students with Hearing Loss and/or Vision Loss, was previously known as the HCDB Diagnostic Team and housed at the Hawaii Center for the Deaf and the  Blind.

On July 1st, 2009 the Office of Curriculum and Student Support (OCISS)  was reorganized and the Hawaii Center for the Deaf and the Blind was moved from OCISS and placed under Honolulu District, Kalani Complex.  The Center was reorganized as a school and the name of the center was changed from Hawaii Center for the Deaf and the Blind (HCDB) to Hawaii School for the Deaf and the Blind (HSDB).

The diagnostic team remains with OCISS but also went into reorganization under the Student Support Branch (SSB), Comprehensive Student Support Services Section (CSSSS), within the Hawaii Department of Education.   The HCDB diagnostic team name was changed  to reflect changes in organization, and is now known as the Diagnostic and Support Team for Students with Hearing Loss and/or Vision Loss. The Diagnostic and Support Team office moved to 475 22nd Avenue and now resides in rom 224 of building 302.

The Diagnostic and Support Team will continue to offer specialized assessment and support of students with hearing and/or visual impairments.  Many of our services are provided in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), Chapter 61 HAR, and the Board of Education, Student Regulations Series, and Policy number 2205 "Rights of Students who are Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, or Deaf/Blind". 

Please refer to the referral guidelines and the SOP's for Vision or Hearing to determine when a student should be referred for an evaluation. If you have questions about referring a student, please contact the  Diagnostic and Support Team for Students with Hearing Loss and Vision Loss at 203-5515, fax at 733-1686 or email lotus notes to:
