A child with hearing loss has been accepted in a mainstream school. Now inclusive education starts. This means that traditional teaching methods used, need to be adapted to accommodate the specific ne
...eds of all children. This is done through differentiation. Differentiation is the process by which differences between children are accommodated to achieve the best learning results possible.An inclusive classroom can be effectively managed and facilitated, using differentiated teaching methods and an Individual Education Plan (IEP).These two strategies will define the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude that teachers require to include a child with hearing loss successfully in a mainstream school. This module explains how a child with hearing loss, who has similar academic potential as his peers, can learn and develop within a mainstream school. It describes how teachers can overcome barriers associated with learning, it gives practical guidelines on how to use differentiated teaching methods, and how to implement and use an IEP.
