DHH 525 - Early Language Acquisition & Intervention


Teachers of Deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) learners require understanding of the early childhood period, given the enormous implications of early development on later development and learning. This course describes the development of DHH infants, toddlers, and young children (focusing on the zero to three period) with particular attention to the development of language and cognition. Further, this course will explore the necessary components of early intervention services and supports for children who are DHH and their families. Course participants will learn about the roles of professionals and family members in supporting the development of DHH children. Participants in the course will integrate knowledge about child development in the early years with knowledge about early intervention practices to design plans for supporting DHH infants, toddlers and young children.
