Steps to Assessment: Identifying Educational Needs for Students with Hearing Loss

This extensive 9.25 hour training will walk you through appropriate assessment practices for children from transition to school at age 3 through high school. Categories of assessment are presented, as are ways to tease out information from assessment results to illustrate how to identify needs to support eligibility.  A variety of assessments are described for each assessment area.

Teachers who participate in this training will have a much better understanding of the vulnerable areas of development due to hearing loss, how the areas interconnect, and ultimately how they are the experts in using the ‘deaf lens’ to contribute to their evaluation teams and service planning. This information will assist educators of the deaf/hard of hearing, educational audiologists and specialist speech language pathologists in being able to advocate with school teams for appropriately tailored assessment and program planning for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. 

(Approximately 9.25 hours)


Target audience:  Administrators, Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, SLPs, Early Childhood providers, School Psychs.
