Enhancing Communications outside the Classroom. Tipsheet: Serving Students Who Are Hard of Hearing
Sivertson, Larry
While many institutions provide communications access for hard-of-hearing students in the classroom, few have made a similar effort outside the classroom. Providing complete access for students with hearing loss begins with the commitment of a university's administration. Some students may require accommodations in several communications situations they encounter on a daily basis. The institution's staff must be dedicated to meeting students' needs, must understand the communications issues associated with hearing loss, know appropriate technologies and techniques to mitigate the effects of hearing loss, and be willing to make the additional effort that may be required. This tipsheet describes strategies for ensuring effective communication access on campus in non-academic situations. (Lists 56 resources.)
