2022 HELIX In-Person Experience: High Expectations for Students with Low Incidence Disabilities
04. How Do Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Improve Access to the Curriculum for Students?
Monday November 14, 2022 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM - The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel
Access to the general curriculum is an essential component of FAPE for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Participants will work in groups to explore the concept of "access" and the areas of instruction on which IEP teams can focus to improve access.
Participants will be able to:
- Construct a shared definition of “access to curriculum.”
- Identify possible barriers to access for students who are deaf or hard of hearing and how to reduce the barriers.
- Identify instructional elements that promote access for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Teachers, administrators, speech language pathologists, related service providers, consultants, training and consulting staff, paraprofessionals, family members
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Annette Bauerlein, at 810-878-7211, or firstname.lastname@example.org
