Promote Language and Listening Development in Children with Hearing Loss

Hearing is critical to the development of speech, language and listening skills. Children with hearing loss do not only need to wear appropriate amplification devices like cochlear implants or hearing aids, but they also need specific intervention to promote listening, speech and language development.

This book gives parents and family members practical tips on how to support a child’s language and listening development using fun home-based activities. It also explains how daily routines can be used to facilitate learning.

Successful development of language and listening skills relies greatly on parent involvement and home practice – this book is a great tool to assist parents in accomplishing that.

Inclusive Education for Children with Hearing Loss

All children with hearing loss should have access to resources and be exposed to an environment where they can learn to listen and develop spoken language. With age-appropriate language development, children with hearing loss can attend and succeed in mainstream schools. It all starts with empowering parents and teachers on how to work with a child with hearing loss.

The aim of this book is to eliminate misconceptions about children with hearing loss – specifically that children with a hearing loss cannot learn spoken language or be accommodated in a mainstream school.

Access to online videos, animation and elearning activities included.

How to be a Better Teacher – A practical Guide for Inclusive Education

Every year teachers mould children’s dreams and hold their fragile hopes in their hands and touch hearts. To truly engage with every individual, it is important for teachers to understand HOW they teach is as important as WHAT they teach. Inclusive teaching in a mainstream school involves much more than meets the eye. 

“How to be a better teacher – a practical guide for inclusive teaching and classroom strategies in a mainstream school” revisits inclusive teaching strategies to examine how successful teachers apply important elements of an inclusive classroom environment and manage the interaction of these principles to create meaningful relationships with each child. 

Topics amongst others include:

• Technology in the classroom

• Multi-level teaching in a classroom

• Classroom activities 

An inclusive classroom environment ensures that all children feel affirmed, engaged and supported by their teachers – although they all have different needs and expectations.
