Professional Development for In-Service Practitioners Serving Children Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Volta Review, v110 n2 p231-247 Sum 2010
Because children who are deaf or hard of hearing are being identified at birth, fitted with advanced hearing technology, and enrolled in early intervention programs, families increasingly seek professionals who can provide services that support their choice of listening and spoken language. The increased demand for these services and shortages of qualified personnel has led to the development of model in-service training programs for teachers of the deaf, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists. Three of these programs--the Carolina Summer Institute in Auditory-Verbal Practice, First "YEARS," and Professional Preparation in Cochlear Implants--provide in-service training opportunities that allow participants to significantly increase their knowledge and skills to serve the needs of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and who are learning to listen and talk. (Contains 1 table and 7 figures.)
