I am a strong believer in developing self-advocacy skills in kids with hearing loss. One way I do this is to take a photo of their amplification device to work on learning the names of the parts, because using their own device increases their motivation to learn. When they know the names of the parts of the device, they can report problems accurately—“My tubing has water in it” or “I only have one bar on my transmitter”—and learn how to troubleshoot their equipment to maintain access to their environment.
About me:
I am a speech-language pathologist and teacher of the deaf, and work for Wake County Schools in Raleigh, North Carolina. I also develop and sell self-advocacy games for students with hearing loss on my website. You can join me on @slptdhh_ruletheschool and Twitter at @slptdhh.
