Targeting Improved Educational Outcomes for School-Aged Students With Hearing Loss
The program was originally aired as part of the “Audiology 2012: Success for Students With Hearing Loss” online conference (October 17–29, 2012).
Legislative mandates for serving students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing have not changed dramatically over the past few years; however, when interpreting and implementing these regulations there continues to be variability between and within states. In addition, changing demographics, universal newborn hearing screening, and improved technologies are increasing the variety of student needs that impact how, where, and who receives services and supports. In this session, we'll provide an overview of educational legislation that's relevant for students with hearing loss and an update on student and provider demographics. Finally, we'll discuss potential service delivery designs and the current and future impact of early identification and increasing technology options that may present challenges and demands for creative service provision.
You will be able to:
- identify specific legislation that can support your services to students with hearing loss in educational settings
- compare legislative mandates and possible service delivery and support options for students with hearing loss in both general and special education settings
- list three factors that may impact future educational services to students with hearing challenges and discuss the potential ramifications for your professional practice
