Too often students with hearing loss are perceived as being socially awkward by their class peers. We realize it takes extra effort for our students to comprehend what peers are saying, especially in noise and distance. Even so, students with hearing loss tend to be delayed in their use of social language (pragmatics) and require direct teaching in how to interact appropriately. I liked this comic book approach for kids and how strong lessons can be taught clearly in a short time. Good 1:1, small group, or even whole class. Karen Anderson, Director
