SPD 608 Hearing Impaired Parent Handout

Atypical Development for Hearing Impairments...Hearing impairment occurs when there is a problem or damage to the inner ear. Conductive hearing loss results from damage to the outer or middle ear; where as Sensorineural hearing loss results in the inner ear or auditory nerve.This creates a difficulty in hearing clearly, understanding speech, and interpreting sounds. This type of loss is permanent, yet may be treated with hearing aides. Students struggling with these hearing losses, will have difficulty with auditory attention, the ability to focus, auditory memory, oral communication, difficulty with receptive ' expressive language, delay in reading, writing, and math skills, along with decoding text and reading comprehension. They could prosess behavioral difficulty in the classroom, and difficulty with peers and expression of feelings. For some children, surgery can help return some or most of their hearing, or the use of implanted devices, and hearing aides, can be used to increase auditory understanding.Since classroom instruction is typically verbal, students with hearing impairments will struggle with understanding verbal instruction. The focus should be on creating ways to increase communication skills. This can be achieved by speaking slowly and directly to students, using sign language, an interpreter or a device to assist student. English Language Modifications:*Recognize students efforts (listening, trying, completing assignments), minimize assignment length *Create a peer partner for student *Cue student before asking them quesitons *Help with contextual clues *Modify length of assignments, in class ' for homework * Offer the use of bilingual dictionary or technological device that offers dictionary abilities ' spell checking...Some recommended interventions can include:Visual schedules and written out presentation information,schedule meetings with collabrative staff to review assessment, focus on specific questions when speaking to students, select a "leader" for group projects so student can ask specific quesitons to this person, teacher can review students work frequently, emphasize main points of lesson, let student ask quesitons, and frequently check with student to see that they are grasping instruction.

Teacher Role

Idealy, the general education teacher and the special education teacher would work together to create appropriate lessons that would meet the needs of the students in the class. In most cases, the general teacher creates the instruction based off of the state standards. Then the special ed teacher will create accommodations and adaptions for the students who need them. Assessment, will be based on collecting samples, and teachers collaborating together to see if the student is meeting the standard requirements.
