Specially designed instruction may be necessary to teach students with hearing loss about their legal rights, accommodations, and how to obtain necessary accommodations in a socially appropriate manner. A student’s need to understand and access accommodations is the rationale behind Helping Hands. This educational tool is a fun, engaging way for students in Grades 1-5 to learn, discuss, and practice ways to handle situations in which they would advocate for their needs and accommodations. The ultimate goal of Helping Hands is for students to independently request and obtain essential accommodations that support success in the classroom and everyday life.
Helping Hands can be customized for each student's individual accommodations. As an added bonus, after using HH in your sessions, it is easily sent home for additional practice and allows parents to be connected to what their child is learning at school.
Additionally, the blocks on the fortune teller are totally editable and can be used to practice anything: /s/ words, vocabulary, math facts, etc.
Includes a data sheet with typical accommodations listed for students with hearing loss, 3 patterns, sample IEP goal and complete directions.
