Parents interested in a referral to the California School for the Deaf are encouraged to discuss this with your child’s IEP Team and/or local school district representative. If placement at CSD is recommended by the IEP Team, your child is referred by the local school district for a (60-day) Assessment for Suitability of Placement (ASP). Upon request, an application packet will be provided by CSD.

Infants (0-3 years):
Infants (0-3 years) are served on the CSD campus through the Mission Valley SELPA and Tri-Valley SELPA. The SELPAs financially support the program, and CSD is responsible for the daily operations. SELPA referrals are made from the Fremont, Newark, and Union City school districts. Other school districts such as Livermore make direct referrals to CSD. The SELPA teacher and the CSD teacher make weekly home visits to the homes of infants to 18 months of age. The children attend the center-based program from 18 months of age to 3 years. The teachers educate parents about program options and the importance of developing effective communication with their children. Upon completion of the infant program, some students apply for admission to CSD, and some students return to their local school districts.Contact Roberta Daniels.

Children ages 5 to 22 attend kindergarten through 12th grade programs. School districts refer students from San Luis Obispo County to the Oregon border.Call the Admissions Office at:
