Grant trains teachers who understand hearing loss

With early screening and diagnosis, cochlear implants for
profoundly deaf children, better hearing aids and more effective teaching
methods, children with hearing loss are having unprecedented success in general
education settings.

To meet the needs of its fast-growing deaf and
hard-of-hearing populations, however, California needs more specialized
teachers. And this school year, the CLU Graduate School of Education’s efforts to
remedy the shortage received a major boost year in the form of a $1.2 million
Education Department grant.
