Hearing Impairment Classroom Tips
 
  • Face the student when you speak.
  • Do not block the areas around your mouth with your hands or other objects.
  • Speak naturally, using your normal tone of voice.
  • Try to avoid standing in front of a light source.
  • Use visual aids whenever possible. Vision is a deaf and hearing-impaired students primary means of receiving information.
  • Avoid speaking to the chalkboard.
  • Write down technical or unfamiliar vocabulary on the black board.
  • Repeat questions or statements from others in the room. Deaf and hearing-impaired students are cut off from those not in visual range.
  • Use facial expressions, hand gestures and other body language to convey your messages.
  • Notetakers are necessary for some hearing-impaired students.
  • Move at a slightly slower pace to allow for the interpreter to keep up with the lectures.
  • Consult the Counselor/Coordinator of Student Accommodations in Student Services for additional information and assistance.
