Teachers of Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Many of the Deaf/HH students in our province are mainstreamed into neighbourhood schools.  Trained teachers work with these students and provide support to the classroom teacher.  It is interesting to note that in California that there are two large Deaf schools in the state which serve approximately 1,000 students.  In British Columbia, the BC School for the Deaf have just over a hundred students.  We hope to update our information and learn more about what is happening for Deaf/HH students in the province.  The Deaf Institutions played an essential role in the lives of Deaf.  For the culturally Deaf, the closure of these school is viewed as a loss.

This three-part interview with an itinerant Deaf/HH teacher was produced by the California Deaf-Blind Services
