More information to come soon!
Presented by Jennifer Hills, TDHH, BCBA
Have you ever wondered if a particular child with hearing loss was on the autism spectrum? Join us for this two-part series: Deafness and Autism: Educational Impact and Strategies signs of autism in children who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing, and strategies to use when big behaviors are impacting the learning environment. Part 1, on Thursday, Dec 1, will focus on Autism Screening of Deaf or hard of hearing Children. Join us as we explore the DSM-V diagnostic criteria for autism in the context of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Checklists will be presented, and items critiqued according to their applicability to children who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Autistic behavior will be discussed in the context of children with hearing differences. Next steps will be considered for children with a suspected autism diagnosis.
Join us for our December Meetup!
What Are People Saying About The Online Itinerant?
Teacher of the Deaf
I wanted to thank you so much for your insightful training in the 5 Day Mastering the Itinerant Model Challenge. I work for a few different districts and managing my schedule is key to providing the services to my students. With your training, I was able to find a way to maximize my time and resources. Your training changed the game! I no longer use my personal time to stress over scheduling, Zoom links, and emails to teachers and I have that time back for myself.

I am amazed at the vast resources offered by the Online Itinerant. The topics are right on target for information and ideas that could help make our job on the road to serve the students more easily with higher quality time. The site strives to produce quality materials and lessons. And the periodic meetings with other colleagues is quite helpful to share ideas and problem solve. This online site is a Godsend!!!
Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Wausau, WI
As a third year DHH teacher and one who had my first year of itinerant teaching this past school year, this website is such a great tool! The modules are very helpful, offer great insight, and I love that they can be done on your own time. The monthly meet ups are great as well, as it’s a time for us to share ideas and feedback with each other. I am looking forward to the future of the website!
Interpreter and DHH Teacher, Sugar Bush, WI

I just found the time to complete my first online training with the Online Itinerant and am very happy with the relevance of the information and the supplemental materials. The convenience of being able to watch these any time I want is a great convenience. I look forward to checking out the other available sessions. Thank you!

This signing program was awesome! Stefanie was great. We participated in this signing program to be able to communicate with our non-verbal 3 year old. While we had some basic signs, Stefanie was able to help us start having basic conversations. The online training and resources she had us use really helped us gain more confidence in communicating with each other and our son. We would definitely recommend this training! Thanks Stefanie!

I wasn’t sure what to expect and was hesitant on how the video chats would work, but the Signing Room has far exceeded my expectations. I get so much receptive and expressive practice every class with fellow parents and Deaf role models. I learn new vocabulary every single class and I get the opportunity to ask questions, clarify signs, and build relationships with my classmates and teachers. I took the plunge for the annual membership after my first class and have never looked back.
