Teaching children with hearing loss to advocate for themselves and their hearing loss is one of the most valuable and functional skills that you can teach your students! Help them understand their hearing devices and feel confident in sharing about them with their classmates.

This resource is an EDITABLE PowerPoint presentation. It comes in zipped file with a PDF credits page.

Here is the content of the 49 slides:

★ Slide 1: Title Page

★ Slides 2-9: Hearing, Hearing loss, Audiologists & Audiograms

★ Slide 10: Frequency of hearing loss

★ Slide 11: Famous people with hearing loss

★ Slide 12-25: Hearing technology (cochlear implants, hearing aids, BAHAs, sound field systems, FM systems)

★ Slide 26: Better communication strategies

★ Slides 27: Questions

★ Slide 28-48: Class quiz (test the audience's understanding)

★ Slide 49: Credits

The PowerPoint is editable, meaning the background of each slide is fixed as a single image, but many slides contain text boxes for you and your student to input information specific to the student (such as when they got their cochlear implant, hearing aid, etc.). There are also places to insert pictures specific to your student (i.e. a picture of their cochlear implant) and you can even customize the included audiogram with the hearing thresholds of your student. Slides with more technical information can be deleted for younger audiences, if desired.

After working with your student to complete the presentation, your student might enjoy giving the presentation (with your help, as needed) to their class or a small group of friends or classmates. The skill of being able to share about hearing loss and hearing technology is one that will benefit your student (and their classmates) for a lifetime by building awareness and acceptance. This would be a great goal for any student with hearing loss.
