Creating an inclusive classroom environment for the hearing-impaired: a handbook for classroom teachers





Degree Name



My research and paper resulted from the question, What tools and resources would facilitate elementary teachers to create an inclusive learning environment to successfully mainstream a hearing-impaired student in their classrooms? Teachers require resources and support from hearing specialists to create a learning environment so hearing-impaired students will have the academic and social/emotion opportunity to develop to their potential. Therefore, this paper is designed as a resource to educate teachers about hearing loss and practical instructional modifications and strategies. The research method was a curriculum design using public records, and researcher-generated documents. I then used the research to create a handbook for teachers with limited experience teaching children with a hearing loss. This study was influenced by my personal experiences working with hearing-impaired children, their families, interactions with hearing experts, and colleagues.
