About Us

Dedicated Educators for Deaf Hard-of-Hearing Students

The goal is simple: To provide Deaf and Hard of Hearing students with a foundation of English literacy skills through activities and strategies that build success at every step.

English is a challenging language. Without a firm foundation in how English "works" a student can develop incomplete skills. Deaf and Hard of Hearing students are usually expected to develop English literacy skills using the same materials and approaches designed for hearing children who have already developed English linguistic skills before they begin Kindergarten. However, hearing children will "practice" English skills in school. Deaf children need much more than opportunities to practice-they need instruction that is comprehensible and developmentally appropriate for their linguistic needs. Though the end goal is the same - independent English literacy abilities - DHH students need clear instructional design, strategies and activities that will support the depth of instruction they require to fairly internalize all English literacy components. 

Developmentally Designed Materials

Deaf and Hard of Hearing children need to develop literacy skills in a manner that makes sense to them. Our materials focus on visually based strategies that are grounded in building concepts first and applying language second. deaf  hard-of-hearing literacy materials reading
