Advancements in early detection of hearing loss and hearing technology have allowed more children with hearing impairment to participate in mainstream education in both public and private schools. Many mainstream educators have not had experience with hearing impaired children, and are therefore unfamiliar with educational implications of hearing loss (or: educational needs of a child with hearing impairment).
Through the Sound Waves (Educational Support) program, our Educational Liaison is available to provide onsite training to school faculty and staff on the topics of:
- Hearing loss
- Hearing technology
- Educational implications of hearing loss
- Use of strategies and accommodations for children with hearing impairment.
The Educational Liaison is also available to provide a presentation about your child’s hearing loss to his or her peers and answer related questions.
Please contact Sara Norwood with questions or to schedule a presentation.
