A networking group for families whose children of all ages have hearing loss
At this meeting, we’ll learn about the unique role of the Teacher of the Deaf & Hard of Hearing (TOD/HH) in your child’s education.
· Who is an itinerant Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (TOD/HH)?
· How is this role different from a classroom teacher or speech pathologist?
· Does every child with hearing aids or cochlear implant need a TOD/HH?
Two speakers will answer these questions.
· Dawne Shaw is an itinerant TOD/HH and former educational interpreter. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Deaf Education from Converse College in 1997 and a Master’s degree in Reading from Clemson University in 2000. She was a WYFF Golden Apple Award-Winning Teacher in 2004.
· Kelly Birmingham is Principal of the Statewide Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education program of the SCSDB Division of Outreach Services. She supervises Teachers of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing who work in school districts across SC. She is a certified TOD and certified Principal who has worked in the field of education for children who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, blind and deaf-blind for over 20 years.
