Early Childhood Study Group

​​This distance study group is facilitated by early childhood educators and consultants, specializing in working with young children with hearing loss who are enrolled in resource rooms, self-contained classrooms and inclusive educational settings. This group is designed for early childhood teachers, speech-language pathologist, mainstream educators, and administrators wishing to explore developmentally appropriate practices for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The session focuses on:

  • Components of developmentally appropriate practices
  • Reflective evaluation tools to examine educational ​instruction and service delivery
  • Administrative monitoring checklists in early childhood environments
  • Effective emergent curriculum planning
  • Observation of early childhood classroom instruction

Study Groups consist of three 2-hours courses (6 hours total); however additional hours may be added to tailor the study group to the specific needs of the organization.
