Including Students Who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing in General Education Classrooms

Do you have a student with a hearing loss in your class this year?  Do you have a student with hearing loss on your campus?  Not sure how hearing loss impacts student achievement?  Not sure about accommodations, hearing aids, assistive listening devices?  Join us for “Including Students Who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing in General Education Classrooms”.  This workshop is designed to provide an overview of the impact of hearing loss on a student’s speech, language, auditory and academic functioning. The causes, types and severity of hearing loss will be described and assistive listening devices will be demonstrated. Classroom accommodations for students with hearing loss at various functional levels will be described. The role of the educational interpreter will also be addressed.  This workshop is open to anyone working with a student who has a hearing impairment, including general education teachers, teachers of the deaf, speech language pathologists, assessment professionals, administrators, parents, and paraprofessionals.

This course will be offered at Region XIII on September 24, 2012, and is FREE!
