Growth patterns and distance learning tips for students who are deaf and hard of hearing webinar
By: Stephanie Cawthon, Elizabeth Barker, Johny Daniel, Jessica Meissner, North Cooc
In this webinar, Dr. Stephanie Cawthon and colleagues share new research following the academic growth trajectories of students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) from grades 2-8. The data show that growth over time tells a different story than studies limited to growth within a year, with students continuing to grow and acquire literacy skills well into middle school. In the second presentation, Jessica Meissner, the Director of Curriculum and Instruction at the Rochester School for the Deaf, shares tips for supporting students who are DHH in distance learning.See More
