Students with hearing loss, very commonly, have some hesitation when following directions. This is often due to lack of complete access hearing/receiving the directions, but also can be due to poor understanding of the language related to following directions. Every teacher, deaf/hard of hearing program, and many parents, can benefit from using these materials to assist the student with hearing loss in day-to-day function in the classroom.
Help your students with communication difficulties learn to listen and follow directions in the classroom and in test-taking.
