- Defining Communication Access for Individuals
who are Hard of Hearing (PPT) Service providers often question whether a student
who is hard of hearing (as opposed to Deaf) would qualify for services
in postsecondary settings. Specifically, many hard-of-hearing individuals
request print accommodations and service providers are often at a
loss as to how to evaluate if this is an appropriate accommodation
for the individual. The goal of this module is to help service providers
develop an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various
accommodations in the range of learning environments to help them
better understand when print accommodations are appropriate.
