Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Responsibilities
A teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing’s main duty is to assist students and children who suffer from hearing loss. Your goal is to develop communication skills to help children grow personally, intellectually, and socially. Like most school professional jobs, you will also work with teachers, parents, and other school professionals. Additionally, you will be required to develop and create personalized IEP plans.
Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Requirements
While laws vary by state, most teachers that work with those with hearing loss need to have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in Education or another related field. Many teachers continue their education with a master’s degree as well.
