Teachers of the Deaf
The one stop for all Teachers of the Deaf
Have you ever wondered how your child’s classroom environment affects the ability to be a part of classroom discussions? When students do not have full access to information, they can easily fall behind. Whether children use an oral approach or utilize a sign language interpreter, they are faced with challenging situations. Speedy lectures, flashing powerpoint slides, reading along from books, looking at a computer while the teacher is simultaneously speaking, group discussions, multiple dialogues, epic stories requiring lengthy periods of concentration – each and all result from time to time in mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion.
Parents’ dreams for their children are universal: attend a good school, get a great education, and grow up to be healthy, happy, productive adults. For most, the decision about the school their children will attend is an easy one: the vast majority of children attend the schools closest to their homes.
