Teachers of the Deaf

Our highly trained teachers of the deaf provide individualized speech, language, and academic intervention to students with hearing loss each day. All are certified Listening and Spoken Language Specialists, or in the process of becoming certified.

The Teachers of the Deaf work as a team with the school’s speech pathologist, audiologist, classroom teachers, and parents to ensure the best possible outcomes for every child with a hearing loss.

In brief, Teachers of the Deaf at Tucker Maxon School:

– provide 20 minutes of individualized speech, language, and/or academic support each day. This could be in the form of one-on-one pull-out, small groups pull-out, or in-classroom support.

– work on each child’s IEP goals, using a variety of strategies.

– do daily sound checks to ensure a child’s hearing devices are properly working.

– are case managers for the deaf and hard of hearing students, both writing and overseeing their IEPs and 504 Plans.

– work with school districts and parents to help them transition to their neighborhood schools.

– do annual assessments of our deaf and hard of hearing students in collaboration with the school’s speech-language pathologist.
