Every Teacher’s Guide to Deafness!!!!
Anyone working with deaf children should know there are two dominant perspectives on deafness. The first view is a cultural belief; the second is a medical or pathological belief and our belief systems influence how we see ourselves and others. Deaf persons, family members and clinicians need to understand their own beliefs about deafness, because they influence deaf person's identity development, self-esteem, and interactions with both hearing persons and others who are deaf.
This PowerPoint helps teachers of deaf and hard of hearing children by addressing many aspects of hearing loss. From the best communication approach to classroom layout, this helpful guide will teach you about the Deaf population and how hearing loss has a different impact on each child. As teachers, it is important to become familiar with the effects of hearing loss, including its severity, to better understand the most accommodating educational methods.
Just a few of the things I will cover in this powerpoint include:
1. Age and Onset of Hearing Loss
2. Severity of Hearing Loss
3. Causes (Etiologies) of Deafness
4. Co-Occurring Disorders
5. Language and Communication Methods
6. Hearing Technology and Its Usefulness in Understanding Speech
7. Language Proficiency
8. Educational Methods and Learning Environments
9. Deaf Children in Hearing Families
10. Ethnic and Racial Diversity
The following powerpoint was created to answer new and seasoned teachers questions regarding deaf students, hearing loss, and how it correlates to better instruction and performance.
