Using Technology to Mentor Aspiring LSLS Professionals
DeMoss, Wendelyn L.; Clem, Becky C.; Wilson, Kathryn
Volta Review, v112 n3 p329-343 Win 2012
Presently, there is a world-wide shortage of professionals qualified to serve children who are deaf and hard of hearing and their families who are seeking a listening and spoken language outcome. To address the crisis of capacity, it is anticipated that an increasing number of professionals not currently serving as mentors will need to engage in mentoring partnerships. These professionals must acquire unique and specific skills and be able to implement them throughout the mentoring cycle. Use of advanced technology can serve to eliminate barriers associated with traditional models. Multiple options and programs using diverse technology make it possible for increased numbers of mentors and mentees to work effectively together, thereby reducing the global deficit of qualified professionals.
