Deaf And Other Considerations
According to the Council for Exceptional Children, credentialed teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing are critical to provide:
Effective educational programming and planning
Student-centered instruction in academic, linguistic, and social-emotional content
Meeting the requirements of [the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act] and [the Americans with Disabilities Act]
Securing positive outcomes for students and schools
Providing specialized instruction and support to meet the specific language, communication, academic and social needs of students who are [deaf or hard of hearing].
The Online Itinerant is a wonderful place to get suggestions and recommendations for almost every aspect teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing encounter. I am walking away with great organizational ideas that within one day, I put into practice. It is nice to know there is a place to go and talk things out with others that can share experiences and ideas!

Language and Literacy
If children do not receive frequent, accessible language before the age of 4, they may never achieve fluency in any language which can stunt cognitive development.
Self-Advocacy & Transition
"I was a special education teacher for 11 years.
A report completed by the National Deaf Center (NDC) on postsecondary outcomes explains:
- Deaf individuals experience social‐emotional difficulties at a rate as high as two to three times that of their hearing peers.
- Deaf children and adults are three to five times more likely to have a serious emotional disturbance than their hearing peers.
- Personality disorders and childhood behavior problems are three to six times more prevalent for deaf individuals,” (2019)
