This session will focus on considerations and strategies to help ensure the communication and learning environment is ready to support each child at home, in the community, and in the classroom. An overview of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) will be presented with discussion of how key components of the UDL framework apply to individualized specialized instruction (content and delivery methods) and access (auditory, visual, communication) for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The S.E.T.T. (Student, Environment, Technology, & Tasks) framework will be illustrated as an example for determining assistive technology needs for students
Participants will be able to:
- Apply the UDL framework to learning for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Describe and apply the SETT framework to determine appropriate technologies and accommodations for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Describe how pertinent legislation (e.g., IDEA, ESSA, and the ADA) can be used to develop supportive learning environments for all students.
