The 4th post in a series providing an overview of web based resources for educators that work with Special Needs students.
We started this series a few weeks back by looking at resources for teaching students with ADD & ADHD
, we focused on Autism & PDD
the next week, and Visual Impairments last week
, and this week we’re looking at resources for instructors that work with Hearing Impaired students.
Below I provide a number of web based resources in each of a few specific categories: techniques & strategies, assistive technology, and ‘other’ resources. I am really just scratching the surface here, as there are many resources available out there - I have culled out some of the cumbersome and poorly organized resources and zoned in on a concise, helpful set of information sources focused on our target topic.
Articles discussing tips and techniques for instructing the Deaf or Hearing Impaired
I came across plenty of articles about this subject, but have provided just a handful of the better ones, as there was often a fair amount of redundancy from one article to the next.
This page from the Ball State University website
is intended for faculty working with students who are deaf or hearing impaired, and provides a great overview of the challenge of working with hearing impaired students, followed by tips and testing and classroom accommodations.
