Rochelle’s Special Education Tips

Sweet Home Alabama

With the growing number of students receiving Home and Hospital Instruction (HHI), it is useful to highlight things you should keep in mind when a student is receiving HHI:

Make sure the HHI teacher(s) are familiar with the HHI IEP.
If data needs to be taken by the HHI teacher, teach the HHI teacher how to take data. Give the HHI teacher a format for taking data.
You should make it a condition of employment for the HHI teacher to attend the IEP team meetings. It makes no sense to hold a meeting without the person who is providing instruction. If the HHI teacher cannot attend in person, require the HHI teacher to attend via telephone.
Tell the HHI teacher not to spoon feed the student the test answers. Instruct the HHI teacher not to do the work for the student.
Does anyone ever observe the HHI teacher? Just asking.
