Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

When a method of communication has been chosen or is being used by an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing, Jill will work within the framework of that chosen approach to develop communication skills. These approaches include:

  • Auditory/Oral Communication– speech, speech reading, auditory rehabilitation
  • Total Communication– signing, speech, gesturing, written language, speech reading, and auditory development
  • Manual Communication– signing in any manner without the use of oral/aural skills
