I gave this session to colleagues. Here’s a bit about me, a summary of the workshop and some useful links:
- My Grandpa was deaf. So from an early age, I have learnt communication strategies for use with deaf people
- When I was doing my Cert Ed (FE), I studied communication and elected to have a short placement with ECSTRA, the FE Organisation based in Coventry that supported deaf/Deaf students
- I have attended deaf/Deaf awareness sessions
- I have CACDP in sign language and communicating and guiding deafblind people
- I edited the Teaching Deaf or Hearing Impaired Students guide (part of the Teaching Disabled Students series)
- I have given a Maths tutorial to a Deaf (capital D) student
- About you
- Types of deafness … communicating … how do you communicate?
- It’s hard to lipread
- What do you know about sign language?
- Teaching deaf students
The Open Road: accessibility for lipreading exercises
Lipreading challenge from BBC Ouch. “…Otherwise you could be ordering a pint down the library and a book in the pub…”
