This site was developed in an effort to assist speech-language pathologists in working with deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. However, it is not meant to be a comprehensive treatise on assessment and intervention with deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. Instead, it provides a sampling of the kinds of activities that may occur.

Date of creation, presentation, or exhibit



The strategies and techniques discussed and demonstrated here are based on experiences with deaf and hard of hearing college students. Consequently, they may be most appropriate for older children and adults. Note: imported from RIT’s Digital Media Library running on DSpace to RIT Scholar Works in February 2014. The instructional sequences with students were filmed during actual therapy sessions and were subsequently selected for demonstration purposes. They are therefore more “real” but also less polished than if we had used scripted interactions. Students granted permission for the samples that were used.
