What is “Special” about Special Education for Students who are D/HH? from RMTC-D/HH on Vimeo.
Resource Materials and Technology Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (RMTC-D/HH) demystifies the confusion of the relationship between Specially Designed Instruction, Expanded Skills for Deaf Hard of Hearing (ES-D/HH) (also known as Expanded Core Curriculum), Universal Instruction, and Response to Intervention (RtI) within a Multitiered system of supports (MTSS) for educators developing, improving and maintaining systems of support for all students.
Teachers can easily be overwhelmed with all these initiatives and how to apply them in their instruction of students. This training will give you a brief overview of how these research-based practices all work together to improve student outcomes. Then participants will explore resources to drive instructional practices and service delivery for individual students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing. Finally, brief examples will be included on how to incorporate the information in a communication plan and an IEP.
