DHH 575 - Deaf and Hard of Hearing Learners with Additional Disabilities (Deaf Plus)


Teachers of Deaf and hard of hearing children (DHH) require knowledge about children who are DHH with disabilities. It is estimated that 40-50% of children who are DHH have an additional developmental, psychological, or physical disability. This course will provide course participants with important and relevant information necessary for working with this population of learners. Course participants will gain knowledge about various conditions that can be classified under the umbrella term, Deaf Plus, and about supports, services and technologies that can be used to support Deaf Plus students.
