This laboratory course is designed for students who are interested in increasing their knowledge of communication technologies. A consumer approach to surveying, selecting, and using communication technologies is employed. Technology areas include auditory, visual, and tactile alerting devices; telecommunication systems; and personal and group amplification systems. The controversial topic of cochlear implants is explored. Finally, students will examine the rights and responsibilities of consumers when using legal support (ADA and PL 504) for the acquisition of communication technologies.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
