Statewide Conference on Education of the D/HH

Statewide Conference on Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Do you have personnel who are struggling to find ways to help students
who are deaf or hard of hearing access grade level curriculum for
general education? Are they searching for new, innovative strategies
to help students perform at grade level standards and be successful on
state assessment? Do you need to gain a broader and deeper knowledge
of effective instructional practices with students who are deaf or hard
of hearing? Are there parents you associate with that long to know
more about how to successfully support their child’s education? Do you
know interpreters and support staff who want to know more about the
educational needs, effective practices, and avenues to improve sign
language communication and in class support needs with this population?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you should
inform and encourage them to attend The Statewide Conference on
Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to be held at Westin Galleria
Houston in Houston, TX on July 30-August 1, 2012
