November 5, 2017—Thanks to the contributions from Clarke staff, Smith/Clarke alumni and Clarke Board Members, we are pleased to announce that the eBook Preparing to Teach, Committing to Learn: An Introduction to Educating Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing, is now available via the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) online learning center.
This eBook is designed to help prepare teachers to navigate the changing landscape of deaf education. "Educating today's students who are deaf or hard of hearing requires knowledge in many academic areas, technological know-how and experience in the field," says Janice Gatty, EdD, director of Child & Family Services at Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech, and author of a chapter on the role of the family in deaf education. "I was excited when Susan Lenihan, the editor, invited me to join my colleagues (some of whom were former students!) on this collaborative project. The book provides a fine framework for training educators preparing to work with children who are deaf or hard of hearing in schools, centers and at home. The authors are knowledgeable in their academic fields and grounded in practice and experience."
This comprehensive eBook is free, and accessible on the NCHAM website. Along with Gatty, these Clarke affiliates have also contributed to the publication:
Congratulations to all contributors, who have committed their time, unique perspective and important expertise to this vital document!
