Teaching the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Unlike other special education teachers, many times you won’t be teaching people who feel they are disabled. The deaf community has very strong feelings that they are as capable as hearing people to interact in the world and lead very happy and successful lives. They simply need a more specialized education and additional assistance to do so, and this education is centered on the use of Burmese Sign Language (BSL). This attitude is empowering for both students and teachers.
