Reading Instruction for Students who are Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing

Presentation Slides

Jessica W. Trussell, Ph.D.

Students entering colleges and careers in this century will read and write more than any other time in our history. This will be no different for students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH). To meet this challenge, teachers of students who are DHH need to deliver evidence-based reading instruction. We will review and practice various strategies and activities to promote students' reading success at the elementary and secondary level.
