The College of Education supports an on-line graduate concentration to prepare teachers of children who are deaf and hard of hearing (DHH). The aim of the teacher preparation program in DHH is to prepare highly qualified teachers who can work with children with varying degrees of hearing loss as well as across multiple educational placements. We believe that parents are integral partners in the educational process and strive to prepare teachers who can foster parental involvement at multiple levels. We believe that all D/HH children need to develop an ability to advocate for their own learning needs and that teachers have a significant role in facilitating development of these skills.
