I provide direct services for students with hearing loss. They wear hearing aids or are cochlear implant recipients. They hear differently than other students and need to learn the necessary foundational skills to listen and to learn. This includes learning all about their own hearing technology and hearing assistive technology to get ready for learning. They work hard and listen even harder!
These dolls and their hearing aids will provide listening and learning opportunities for my students who are learning to wear, care for, and utilize their hearing technology in the classroom.
Through play and routine, we will be "getting ready" to listen and perform Ling 6 sound checks and other important auditory tasks to work towards our listening and speaking goals.
These dolls along with their hearing aids will also provide a resource for the students to relate on a more personal level, work on social-emotional learning, and practice caring for their listening health and well-being, so they can then begin to perform these skills for themselves across all environments.
