Supporting Deaf Students--and All Students
Yuknis, Christina; Santini, Joseph; Appanah, Thangi
Educational Leadership, v74 n7 p68-72 Apr 2017
Two faculty members and a Ph.D. student at Gallaudet University, the world's only university for the deaf, explain the concept of Deaf-Gain, which reframes the idea of hearing loss into one of gaining deafness and recognizes the contributions that deaf people make to society. This narrative assumes that deaf students and all students bring learning differences to the classroom, and that these differences have value. Universal Design for Learning is a framework that helps educators approach planning by looking at all students as individuals with unique learning profiles. In this article, the authors describe three strategies that support deaf students and also benefit students who can hear: using closed captions, making the most of visuals, and supporting social develop and interaction.
