Using Great Instructional Materials for Great Outcomes

Presentation Description: Itinerant teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing typically have a caseload of all ages and go to many schools each week. Having readily available materials is necessary to meet student needs. This presentation will share many “tried and true” ideas for highly useful materials to use with students with hearing loss.

Three Learner Objectives: The participant will be able to:

1) Share a comprehensive list of favorite materials to use as an Itinerant teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing

2) Recognize how materials can be used to address goals in multiple areas of development.

3) Walk out with ideas on how commonly found materials in a school setting can be used to develop listening, language, and advocacy skills of students with hearing loss.
