Due to the successes of infant hearing screening programs, early intervention programs and technological advances in amplification, more hearing-impaired students are now arriving at Kindergarten with age-appropriate or close to age-appropriate language/literacy development. They will spend most if not all of their school days in regular classrooms. Even with the best of IEPs and amplification, situations will occur that will challenge students with hearing impairments. This board game is a fun way to assess and practice knowledge about hearing loss, amplification systems, communication repair and classroom accommodations. Socially appropriate ways of expressing this knowledge is practiced in a fun game board format.
Print the game board on cardstock and attach to the inside of a folder. Laminate for durability.
