The workshop is titled, "Students with Hearing Loss in the Classroom: Why, When and How to Help!" and will provide an explanation of the various reasons why students, even those with good speech and auditory skills, may miss or misunderstand information. This includes basic issues of auditory access, as well as linguistic, phonemic, and schematic gaps and their consequences.

Now in its 22nd year, the Massachusetts Special Education Conference brings together teachers, paraprofessionals, specialists, consultants, administrators and service providers from around the State for two days of presentations and discussions around key issues in special education.
