A federal court reversed a Decision by the California Office of Administrative Hearings and ordered a school to refer J.G. to the California School for the Deaf. J.G. was a high school student who could read only at an elementatey school level. His primary mode of communication was American Sign Language (ASL). He needed to be immersed in ASL to develop his language to an appropriate level of proficiency. This would also help him to learn to read at a higher level according to the federal court judge. J.G. ex rel. Jimenez v. Baldwin Park Unified School Dist., 78 F. Supp, 3d 1268 (C.D. Cal. 2015).
