Become a School Social Worker
With Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children!
About the Program
Statistics from the US Department of Education tell us that there are almost 71,000 children with hearing loss in grades one through twelve. There are more than 12,000 deaf-blind children in our schools. The number of children with cochlear implants is rising dramatically each year.
Yet most mainstream schools and deaf schools do not have trained support staff to work with these children.
Graduates have found excellent employment opportunities. Recent graduates work in school settings with deaf children in:
Maine, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, The District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Texas, New Mexico, California, Missouri, Washington, Delaware
