Description

Developing resiliency in young children who are deaf or hard of hearing is one skill that we can help them to cultivate in order to have the most positive outcomes later in life. How can we help children to bounce back after setbacks and to learn from challenging situations? Thriving in the face of adversity comes from resilience, a super power that we can cultivate in young children. Children who are deaf or hard of hearing may be at higher risk for experiencing bullying, abuse from others, or being taken advantage of. Developing protective strategies in order to build resilience is one way that professionals, caregivers and families can decrease risk and promote positive later outcomes. Strategies for developing resilience in young children will be reviewed, with opportunities for practice and development of strategies to apply to the young children you work with. 1) PowerPoint Presentation: This document has the slides to be followed by attendees during the presentation. 2) Essential Building block of Resilience handout. 3) A brief summary of essential findings on resilience handout. 4) Tips for resilience guide for parents and teachers handout.
