Program Description

ES 495/695.603 Directed Studies

Children who are deaf or hard of hearing are achieving age appropriate language and speech skills at a younger age due to early identification and advances in hearing technology. As a result, these children are integrated into the mainstream classroom setting. Despite having many age appropriate speech and language skills, it is crucial to monitor auditory skills continually to ensure progress. Without access to auditory skills, children learning through listening will not achieve academic goals. This presentation will focus on ways to assess and monitor auditory skills. It will explain how diagnostic teaching can integrate auditory development into academic curricula. Through role-playing and hands on activities, you will walk away with the skills and materials to implement strategies the next day.
