Successful Transitions to the Real World: Using GAP and Apps to Connect
The program was originally aired as part of the “Audiology 2012: Success for Students With Hearing Loss” online conference (October 17–29, 2012).
Success in the "real world" and being an effective self-advocate are key outcomes of transition planning; however, teens and young adults who are deaf or hard of hearing may have difficulty with self-advocacy and success because of communication barriers. In this presentation, we'll explore tools and activities that will help a student with hearing loss plan for employment, education, and independent living following graduation, thus becoming a stronger self-advocate.
You will be able to:
- describe the GAP program and resources that are designed to help teens who are deaf and hard of hearing, their parents, and professionals who serve this population
- prepare a transition activity that addresses a key provision in the IDEA 2004 transition planning requirements
- identify and access two free or low-cost apps that will benefit a teen with hearing loss and explain how they can be used to assist the student in his or her environment
- select different technological connectivity options for students with hearing loss
