Learning Objectives:

Supporting Children in Extra-Curricular Activities is intended to support parents and caregivers of children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing as they engage in extra-curricular activities…

· What does the environment look like (is it a dance studio? A soccer field?)

· What are common vocabulary words used in the activity (e.g. soccer: kleets, soccer ball, net, goal, positions of team members) and how can I help preteach important words and terms to my child?

· How can I support my child’s coach/instructor as they work with my child?
