Match It! Sell It! Guarantee It! Getting Your Students the Support They Need

Presentation Description : This session will provide strategies for determining the type and the amount of special education service: Deaf/Hard of Hearing your student needs to succeed, and techniques for working with IEP teams and administrators in securing the critical involvement of a teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing in the delivery of services.

Three Learner Outcomes : The participants will be able to:

  1. Consider a range of options for service delivery from a teacher of the D/HH and gather student data that will support determining the type and the amount of D/HH service your student needs to achieve in the academic setting. (Match it to student need!)
  2. Identify compelling approaches for communicating special education service needs, i.e., Deaf/Hard of Hearing, to administrators, parents and other IEP team members. (Sell it to the team!)
  3. Develop IEP components that will contain the safeguards necessary to ensure the student’s access to appropriate D/HH services. (Guarantee it in writing!)
