The 2013 issue of Odyssey includes 20 articles by 26 authors on accessing appropriate special education and related services for deaf and hard of hearing students.
"The tsunami-like wave of advances in early identification, medicine, and technology and in educational practice, policy, and accountability create both opportunity and risk for the students we serve," said Ed Bosso, vice president of the Clerc Center, in his introduction. "The stories in this issue of Odyssey illustrate the complexities and challenges faced in obtaining and providing appropriate services for deaf and hard of hearing students. ...It is my hope that these articles are a catalyst for dialogue and necessary change."
