About Deaf Education

The Bachelor of Arts in Deaf Education is designed to develop highly effective teachers who are equipped to work with students who are deaf or hard of hearing in a variety of educational settings and have mastered the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices (FEAPs) and Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) teaching standards. Pre-service teachers in the program will learn a comprehensive and balanced perspective of students’ varying communication modes (sign and/or listening and spoken language), language and academic proficiency levels, use of assistive hearing devices (hearing aids or cochlear implants), family dynamics, and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. 

 

This is an Initial Certification Program in Hearing Impairment pending FLDOE approval with endorsements in ESOL and Optional Reading.
