Students who are deaf or hard of hearing are a diverse population of individuals who may use various languages, communication modalities, and technologies. Often, SLPs do not have in-depth training to confidently work with these students. In this webinar, an SLP and an audiologist share practical approaches, tools, and resources that SLPs can use to determine how to best meet the needs of students who are deaf or hard of hearing and support them in the school environment.
You will be able to:
- Explain an audiogram in general terms, including the various types of hearing and hearing levels and how they directly relate to spoken language skills in students who are deaf or hard of hearing
- List strategies you can implement when working with students who are deaf or hard of hearing
- Identify two resources to help in your work with school staff, parents/caregivers, and students who are deaf or hard of hearing
"The presenters were excellent at giving us the full picture of their students, schools, and challenges. It was helpful to have an audiologist to explain her perspective, her area of expertise, and how she and speech-language pathologists are complementary when making recommendations for the student."
"I would like the speakers to know that this is one of the best webinars I have participated in! I was an engaged student for the entire time; the data, discussion, polls, strategies, rationale, and resources were all informative and applicable."
