Online Course Detail


Children who experience early success with their cochlear implants often find themselves in regular education settings for their school-age years. Other children utilizing implants have no alternative but to receive services through public school cooperatives. Itinerant teachers of children who are deaf are called upon to support all students in the mainstream, but the diversity of individual profiles makes it difficult to find a “formula” for service delivery. This online presentation identifies three broad tasks of itinerant teachers and makes specific recommendations for each task with regard to best utilizing limited instructional time.
