Tips and tools include: Email Schedulers, Loom Videos, automated check-in sheets, communication logs and daily planner pages.
Understand, identify and articulate the role of the Teacher of the Deaf and how that role merges with the responsibilities of the Interpreter, Audiologist, and General Education, Special Education Teachers and the student!

Join Monica Faherty, founder of Rule The School, as she walks through how to use the general education curriculum for intervention. This training focuses on why you would use classroom based lessons for direct instruction and goes deep into the approach of using the evidence based concept of using storybooks with classroom materials to implement your IEP Goals.

Telecoils, bluetooth connectivity and streaming devices - oh my! Gain knowledge about the impact mobile devices are having on communication for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and what assistive technology is available to meet the needs of this population of students.
This module also includes information on TEPP and government programs that help provide funding for some assistive technology for DHH students.
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 hows of captioning.
This training includes an exclusive assessment on how to identify if a student is a candidate for captioning as well as a step by step outline to help identify the best captioning resource to meet your needs.
Cultivating and developing friendships can be a real challenge for DHH students. They may be the only student in the entire school with hearing loss. And yet, it is critical to their identity for them to feel comfortable in who they are for them to be able to have positive relationships with others, excel at academics, and even advocate for themselves as they go through life.
Join Dr. Jennifer Zynda as she shares her experience and perspective on how to best build collaboration and communication to meet the needs and impact the outcomes of students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Dr. Zynda discusses her journey through understanding social/emotional needs, interpreting, captioning, technology and more. She will encourage, inspire, and empower you!
