Presented by: Lynne H. Price

A 2009 survey stated that only 24% of deaf, deaf-blind, and hard of hearing adults advocate for needs related to hearing. In addition to language, literacy, and vocabulary, children need to learn advocacy skills to fully access information and communicate in a global setting. Steps to Success presents a scope and sequence of skills, instructional strategies, activities, and assessments to enable a student to be an effective listener, a successful communicator, a proficient reader, and a knowledgeable consumer of goods and services related to hearing needs.
