Date: January 25, 2023

Time: 03:00PM - 05:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

Students with communicatively significant hearing loss increasingly attend regular classrooms and many are referred for assessment. Myriad additional risk and resilience factors become important that are not a typical part of evaluations with hearing students. Assessment tools and methods may require accommodations or modifications or may not be interpretable. This practical skills workshop will help prepare practitioners to evaluate students who are Deaf or hard of hearing and to know when to seek further consultation and referral.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain what to do when asked to assess students who are Deaf or hard of hearing.
  • Identify relevant risk and resilience factors.
  • Methodically select and adapt assessment tools and methods.
  • Describe when it is appropriate to seek additional expertise when working with Deaf and hard of hearing students.

Qualification Level Required: B
