Beyond Early Intervention: Providing Support to Public School Personnel
Wilson, Kathryn
Volta Review, v106 n3 p419-431 Win 2006
At age 3, children with hearing loss transition from Part C early intervention to Part B public school services. These children represent a heterogeneous population when considering factors such as communication approaches; speech, language, auditory and cognitive skills; social-emotional and motor development; parental involvement; hearing technology; ethnicity and additional challenges such as learning disabilities. School personnel must have the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to serve this diverse population. This article describes the North Carolina Resource Support Program (RSP), an outreach program designed to address the needs of public school personnel serving students who are deaf or hard of hearing ages 3-21. Program components including staff, services and future directions are discussed.
