Recorded WebinarText/Transcript

Fostering self-advocacy in elementary-aged students with hearing loss is a complex, multi-parameter endeavor. This course will introduce adaptation of the instructional concepts of coaching and gradual release of responsibility involving the constituents (the student, the family, and the school personnel) and the 3-prong continuum involving the "operator" (the student), the "equipment" (ALDs), and the "listening environment". Specific examples will be provided to optimize the course participants understanding of these concepts.
