This course is designed to expose school counseling majors to the deaf child with special needs and low incidence disabilities in the school program. During the semester, school counseling graduate students will study the various medical and psychosocial issues of deaf students who have multiple disabilities. Additionally, the graduate student will discuss various approaches to providing both preventative and remedial mental health services to deaf students with special needs, and consultation services to parents, families, teachers, and staff members when appropriate. Specific instruction in developing the social/emotional component of the IEP, developing behavior plans, and providing consultation in behavior management, social skills development, independent living skills training, and transition planning will also be discussed.
