Tutoring/Notetaking as a Support Service for Deaf Students.
Wilson, Jimmie Joan
The paper describes a program developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf in which hearing impaired students in the academic mainstream receive tutoring/notetaking support services. A notetaking system is employed in which the notetaker writes from four to six readable copies of notes at one time. The notetaker, a trained normally hearing person, then acts as the tutor for the class as needed by deaf students. Tutors are trained in problems related to hearing loss, techniques and functions of notetaking, and tutoring. Tutors must be prepared to deal with requests for clarification of assignments, test preparation, course content study, or project completion. An exerpt from the training manual is included to illustrate training in notetaking. The tutor's potential role in acting as a liaison with classroom teachers can help to ensure success. (CL)
