This course is part of the required sequence for the aging and hearing loss concentration. Its focus is on social policy and community planning issues related to needs and services for aging people in the United States. Questions facing all aging individuals will be framed within two contexts: the cultural context of the aging deaf, and the special situation of deaf and hard of hearing elderly people. The course’s perspective is to examine how national policy and service networks promote or interfere with successful aging and ways in which social work can contribute to improving relevant social policies and programs.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
