Psychosocial Aspect of Being Deaf/Hard of Hearing
John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence, 2445 3rd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134
An increasing number of students with lower hearing levels are being placed in general classroom settings. However, these students need specific accommodations and services to support their learning and social-emotional development. This presentation will discuss the impact of limited access to language, academic learning, and social-emotional development in mainstream classroom settings and strategies that can help Deaf or hard of hearing students succeed at school. Join this session to develop a basic understanding of factors to consider while working with Deaf/hard of hearing (DHH) children and adolescents, and learn how to create trauma-informed classrooms geared for DHH students. Use social emotional learning tools with DHH students and increase comfort working with DHH persons, either directly with them or via an interpreter.
Presented in ASL. Interpreters will be provided.
