Supporting Success for Children with Hearing Loss strives to offer practical and easy-to-use materials for the busy teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing. Moving between schools, mainly serving ‘one and onlies’ or a few small groups of students means having many materials on hand and a great knowledge of what to use to accomplish goals.
Although Supporting Success resells items from other product lines that are a good fit for students with hearing loss. we are best known for our sole source ‘homegrown’ books and teaching tools, such as:
- Building Skills for Success in the Fast-Paced Classroom
- Steps to Assessment
- Steps to Success
- Building Skills for Independence in the Mainstream
- Recorded Functional Listening Evaluation Using Sentences
- SCRIPT – Student Communication Repair Inventory & Practical Training
We are continually on the look out for new teaching materials that truly meet the unique needs of our students with hearing loss. If you have an extensive background in serving the needs of students with hearing loss and have a great idea for a publication, Supporting Success Publications may be interested in making your dream a reality.
We are most interested in teaching materials used to assess or to build specific skills that are at risk for development in children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Although we believe that families need great materials to share with their children, Supporting Success is primarily focused on providing materials for teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing, educational audiologists, and speech language pathologists or others who frequently work to improve the skills of students with hearing loss, typically who are primarily in the regular education environment.
We want to help to close learning gaps, develop interaction skills and confidence, and overall improve the outcomes of student performance at school and socially. Applicability/adaptability for students with all communication modes is important. We are also interested in materials that would assist teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing or teams in better serving the students with hearing loss who have additional learning challenges. Publications need to be applicable to identifying needs, or addressing goals/objectives developed for these populations. Functional materials rather than Clinical materials are preferred.
