Hello! My name is Bobbie Jo Kite, and I am currently a faculty at Gallaudet University- Department of Education. Today, I will discuss our new program titled "American Sign Language and English Bilingual Early Childhood Deaf Education: Birth to Five" Certificate program.
This 21-credit Graduate certificate program is designed to offer a program of study for in-service and pre-service professionals who work with deaf and hard of hearing children and their families in educational settings. This innovative program will provide pre-service and in-service knowledge and skills relevant to the theories and applications connected to pedagogy and ASL/English bilingual education for deaf and hard of hearing children from birth to five years old.
For general application requirements, please visit our website: www.gallaudet.edu/education.html.
Interested applicants for the American Sign Language and English Bilingual Early Childhood Education: Birth to Five Certificate program may apply for either graduate or professional studies training credits (PST).
If you have questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us via email. Our email address is AEBECE@gallaudet.edu.
