Project Access includes principles in Universal Design for Learning (UDL), as well as instructs best practices for working specifically with deaf and hard of hearing students.
This experiential workshop enables participants to gain an understanding of how deaf students experience a mainstreamed classroom, and provides real-life strategies and extensive on-line resources that will help teachers and faculty modify their teaching to provide greater access for students by:
- Sensitizing educators to challenges faced by deaf and hard-of-hearing students in a mainstream environment
- Presenting effective use of support service personnel (sign language interpreters, notetakers, tutors, and captionists)
- Preparing individual teaching strategy plans
- Assisting in mastering strategies to meet the goals of Universal Design in education
Project Access shares best practices for instruction for the benefit of all students in the classroom.
