Considerations when Teaching Students Who Are Deaf-Blind. PEPNet Tipsheet
Jordan, Beth
When a student who has both a vision and a hearing loss registers to take a course, each component of the course will need to be reviewed to determine if the student requires accommodations, e.g. syllabus, handouts, overheads or other AV materials, exams, and paper assignments. There is not a formula for addressing these needs because students who are deaf-blind have differing levels of hearing and vision loss. The first step is to talk with the student about the course to determine what modifications are necessary. This tipsheet provides tips for accommodating students who are deaf-blind.
