About the Course

This course provides you with invaluable knowledge and skills about teaching Deaf children. We'll learn about the importance of Deaf culture and community, the need for a language rich environment for the Deaf child from as young as possible, and having access to sign language can help Deaf children academically, emotionally, and socially. We'll also cover various accommodations and modifications that you can apply in your classroom and learning environment to create an accessible learning experience for Deaf children. You will also find that a shift in attitude will enable you to respond to Deaf children with more understanding. We trust that you will end the course with the knowledge and skills essential to enhance your teaching and that you find your attitude to be a stronger conduit to convey information to Deaf children. We hope that you become an empowered teacher - for yourself, for your fellow teachers, and most importantly, for the Deaf children in your classroom....
