Workshop Description
Children with hearing loss are likely to struggle with reading comprehension and with writing, regardless of the severity of their hearing loss; students who can't read and write proficiently can't participate fully in school, the workplace or society. The good news is that strong literacy skills CAN develop with knowledgeable support from professionals and parents!

Learning Objectives

  • After this course, participants will be able to state one example of how to use technology to access literacy
  • After this course, participants will be able to identify the critical elements for literacy development in children with hearing loss, and identify tools and techniques for measuring and supporting literacy development
