Webinar Series for Professionals: Trading in the One-Time In-Service for Consistent Communication with School Teams

This presentation will teach concrete ways for teachers of the deaf (TODs) and other professionals supporting mainstream students who use listening and spoken language to structure and sustain consistent communication with educational teams.

Because hearing loss is a low-incidence disability, general education teachers often lack the training needed to work with this unique population of learners. This presentation offers TODs, speech-language pathologists and other professionals strategies for effective communication with teachers and teams. The goal is for increased knowledge among school teams and improved outcomes for students who are deaf and hard of hearing.

AG Bell Academy CEUs pending approval. Certificates of attendance will be provided.
