Product Description

Learning to Listen/Listening to Learn is the first comprehensive work to address the systematic development of skills in listening for and interpreting auditory information for students who are blind or visually impaired. Listening skills are a crucial but often-overlooked area of instruction for children who are visually impaired and may have multiple disabilities, essential to literacy, independent travel, and sensory and cognitive development.

Chock full of practical strategies, this volume examines the development of and instruction in learning skills at different ages, from infancy through high school. It also addresses listening skills in orientation and mobility and the needs of children with multiple disabilities, hearing impairment, and learning disabilities, as well as English language learners. Appendixes provide a Listening Skills Continuum chart and a checklist to use in assessment.
