In order to address possible knowledge gaps or perceived knowledge gaps, in the area of communication development of young Deaf and Hard of Hearing children, a crosswalk was developed. The crosswalk consists of matrices that highlight areas in which the Listening and Spoken Language Specialist (LSLS) certification from AG Bell and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) Deaf and Hard of Hearing (D/HH) appear to share content and knowledge. The matrices were developed to find areas of commonality related to teaching children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. The LSLS and CCTC D/HH Standards represent different frameworks, however, there are many shared competencies represented in both documents. The matrices highlighted competencies in which the shared competencies were not as strong. Those areas were used to develop a professional development series to address hearing and hearing technology, auditory functioning, spoken communication and strategies of listening and spoken language development. Data from the professional development series, along with the series format and content will be shared. Preliminary data from the professional development consists of pre and post surveys related to teacher confidence on workshop content, and development of new and strengthened instructional strategies to support communication development.
- Identify competency areas in programs when professional development programs.
