Implementing NASDSE Guidelines: Optimizing Outcomes for Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

April 01, 2021 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm

This is not a typical “sit & get” workshop!  In this training, district teams will utilize their current data to analyze how students are being served and what supports might be needed to increase student performance.  Teams will develop action steps to implement based on the evidence-based practices and program evaluation tool contained in the document. 

A prerequisite video will provide an explanation of the NASDSE guidelines, Optimizing Outcomes, and how to utilize the Program & Service Review Checklist.  This will provide the foundational information needed for the live (virtual) training.  Materials and the pre-session video will be posted on March 1, 2021.

Deaf Education is an interdisciplinary field.  Districts are encouraged to register teams to ensure a comprehensive approach is utilized in serving students.  Teams could include, but are not limited to, District Administrator, Coordinator, Building Administrator, Teacher of the Deaf, Speech/Language Pathologist, Audiologist, Special Education Teacher, General Education Teacher, School Psychologist.

In order to maximize your time during this workshop, please designate one member of your district team to locate, identify and describe the deaf/hard of hearing (DHH) population in your district including IEPs and 504 plans.  Please complete the survey at the following link by March 17.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OptimizingOutcomes.
