DESCRIPTION:
Because of delayed language skills and fewer opportunities for incidental learning, social skills don’t just happen for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Even mild or temporary hearing loss can delay the development of social skills. Ways of approaching socialization and social skills training will be discussed. Thoughts for achieving social inclusion in a variety of settings are offered, including community activities, school activities, peer groups, recreation opportunities, etc. The value of a mentor or role model who is deaf or hard of hearing is discussed. The presenter’s daughter is now in college. Personal accounts of socialization successes and struggles are included in this session.

Learning Objectives:
· Attendees will learn what socialization challenges are faced by children who are DHH
· Attendees will gain an understanding that socialization modeling starts at a very early age
· Professionals will leave with ideas to help parents work on socialization skills from the start.

PRESENTER:  Andrea Marwah received her BA degree in Psychology from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. Since her daughter was diagnosed with hearing loss in 2002, she has taken a special interest in educating parents and professionals on matters concerning ADA, IDEA, and advocacy for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Andrea presents both nationally on matters pertaining to advocacy and IDEA; deafness/hearing loss when combined with other disabilities; the impact of deafness/hearing loss; and many topics surrounding parenting and working with children who are deaf and hard of hearing. She works for the Illinois School for the Deaf as an outreach trainer and consultant for families and professionals who work with children who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind. Andrea began her Presidency at Illinois Hands & Voices in 2010 and is a national trainer for the Hands & Voices.

TIME:  1:30PM CST; 2:30PM EST

PRESENTER:    David Brown

DESCRIPTION:
Far from being exclusive and special, and different from mainstream education, deafblind education has an inclusive holistic philosophy from which all children would benefit, but especially those for whom the approach was first devised. This presentation will focus briefly on the history and development of the approach and the changing nature of the population of children identified as having deafblindness. Then there will be consideration of assessment approaches, programming, instructional strategies, and environmental considerations all from a deafblind perspective.

With the rapid shift to online learning due to the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in the use of auto captioning and automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology. But do they provide deaf students and staff with equitable and timely accessibility in classrooms, meetings and events, and extracurricular activities? Is auto captioning comparable to manual speech-to-text services, such as CART, C-Print, or TypeWell services? This event is an opportunity for educators and postsecondary professionals to learn from experts about the impact of auto captioning and ASR on effective communication with deaf students and staff, as well as the institutional responsibility for colleges and universities.

Get answers to these questions and more!
