DHH 500 - Communication & Language for DHH Students

Teachers of Deaf and hard of hearing children (DHH) require extensive knowledge about the “many ways to be deaf” and the diversity of approaches to communication and language that exist for students with reduced hearing. DHH learners are a heterogenous group; naturally, the ways in which they communicate and the supports that they require vary. Course participants will gain knowledge about the role of related service providers in supporting DHH learners and the many roles that they themselves might play as educators for DHH children. This course will address contemporary issues and challenges related to communication and language development, including divergent perspectives within the field.
