The purpose to You and Your Tricky Hearing Loss is to help the child express the internal meaning of what it is like for them to have a hearing loss. The student is asked to describe different aspects
... of the hearing loss as though it is separate from themselves. This is an active step in helping the student to recognize how different they feel from others and allow discussion to provide other perspectives. This exercise can be followed by The Secondary School Survey (P01SCI0664), the Wizard's Challenge Game (P01SCI0668) or any work to develop communication repair and self-advocacy skills.
Auditory skills are developed within a set hierarchy. This 1-page sheet provides a checkable list of auditory skills represented by the hierarchy. It is a good summary to share with families and educa
...tors to demonstrate the complexity of learning listening skills when a child is born with a hearing loss.
