DHH 520 - Child Development - Hearing and Deaf Children


This course will be grounded in developing understanding of child development including physical, social, emotional, and cognitive domains. Additionally, development is influenced by contextual elements in a child’s world. This course will emphasize the need to be cognizant of social issues, cultural influences, and the interplay of biology/environment to better understand how children grow. This course will emphasize how comprehension of developmental levels should influence the expectations of children that are established, inform how teachers teach, and guide the strategies that are used to foster childrens’ development. 

Teachers of Deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) learners require understanding of child development in addition to understanding the potential influences that hearing status, as well as the presence of additional disabilities, can have on child development. Through this course, participants will establish that knowledge.
