The project will be focused on the exploration of the ways that the teachers use to deal with the deaf students that struggle with an additional disability in form of Attention Deficit Disorder. The teaching and learning strategies will be studied in order to determine the success rate, if any, by implementing the goals and results produced by the methods and the objectives associated with the lessons being taught at the time and to determine the willingness of the educators in working with such said disabilities. The experiences of the deaf students with the disorders will be documented as to gain a better understanding of the domestic and academic relationships surrounding those students. (Parent-teacher collaboration for example). The object of my thesis is to determine the success the techniques being employed and to document the success derived from using the approaches that aide the students with the disorders by basing on the feedback provided by the teachers and parents.
