Teacher of the Deaf
This piece of your puzzle should be certified by the State Department of Education to teach students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Teachers of deaf and hard of hearing children are specialists in communication and language development. The majority of children who have a hearing loss should start working with a teacher of the deaf when they enter public school at age 3. It doesn’t matter how much or how little hearing loss a child has, a Teacher of the Deaf is an integral part of the team! Communication between professionals in your child’s life and the Parent Education Specialists at Beginnings SC is a continuing process. We will start talking about public school when your child is 2 ½ and will often attend those first meetings with your family at school.
