What Can I Do about Hearing Problems?

If you think a student has hearing problems, you can let their family members know and encourage them to get a hearing screening. You can accommodate hearing-impaired students by facing them when speaking to facilitate lip reading and being aware of not making them feel self-conscious. You can also incorporate pictures and graphs in learning materials, as hearing-impaired children are often visual learners. Explore our materials on how you identify and address hearing issues so kids are healthy and ready to learn below.
