Advocating for an Educational Audiologist
Join us April 16 at 7:00 CST with Kym Meyer
Educational audiology service provision varies, depending on the area of the country you live in. If your school district has an educational audiologist on staff, or has a regular consultant coming to your school – great! But what if your school has never heard of educational audiology? How can you advocate to create an audiology service where one does not exist? It isn’t easy, but parent and professional advocacy makes anything possible! This talk will provide #EdAudAdvocacy resources - how to advocate for services that are outside the teacher of the deaf's scope of practice..
Join us on April 16th and learn why this service is essential to our students who are deaf and hard of hearing!
**This training is available LIVE or available on-demand through your Professional Academy Membership.

What Are People Saying About The Online Itinerant?
Karen Anderson, PhD.
Director, Supporting Success for Children With Hearing Loss
With travel and conference budgets tightening it has been increasingly difficult for teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing to find professional development that will truly help them in their work with their students. Hooray for The Online Itinerant! There is now an option for professional development that not only has many relevant presentations on tap, but a thriving community and live Meet Ups so that teachers can also feel supported by one another. The Online Itinerant helps teachers deal with today’s issues in serving students with hearing loss!
Teacher for the Deaf /Hard of Hearing, Indianola, IA
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 have to say I LOVE what you are doing with the Online Itinerant. You and the amazing presenters have helped me tremendously in such a short time. Thank you so much for all you do. You are truly making a big impact in my life and early education/experience in this profession.

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.
