In spite of new technology and best teacher intentions, many students who function as hard of hearing still do not have equal access to their education. Learn the who, what, where and how students as young of 4th grade may benefit from captioning in the classroom to provide this access. Learn the different types of captioning, identify if it may be an appropriate accessibility service, and find out how a school can provide it for your child!
Join Dr. Jennifer Zynda as she shares her journey as an administrator understanding the needs of DHH students, professionals and families as she learned about the social/emotional needs of students, working with interpreters, understanding captioning and other technology and more. Dr. Zynda will share her experience and perspective on how to best build collaboration and communication to meet the needs and impact the outcomes of this unique population of students. She will encourage, inspire, and empower you!
