Communication repair strategies are important for children with hearing loss. Deaf and Hard of Hearing students will often just say "what?" when they don't hear something, or they will not say anything at all. This lesson plan introduces helpful communication repair strategies and many opportunities to practice.
Please note: due to nature of illustrations, the book is ONLY available in color. The rest of the sheets are available in black and white.
The strategies discussed in this resource are specifically for when you can't hear the other person. Part of communication repair is adjusting when someone cannot understand you, but that is not addressed in this resource. This focuses mostly on giving deaf and hard of hearing students other options besides "what?!" when they don't hear someone.
Side note: One of the strategies mentioned is to ask the other person to say it louder. This is not appropriate in all situations, as speaking louder can distort the auditory message. However, there are some situations (soft speaker, loud cafeteria) in which it might be helpful for the other person to speak up. Part of the resource is teaching students to use the right strategy at the right time :)
