Teaching deaf kids!
Hi Guys!
One of my new student is deaf and this is the very first time I dealing with such situation. I was looking for some tips, helpful techniques, similar stories, etc.

He is a very smart student. He has an awesome memory and he can read lips very well. 90% of the time that I ask him something he is able to reply, although it is not always easy to understand what he says but for the most part, yes (I �ve been getting much better). Two of his siblings are in the same class, so that helps, but the teaching method I follow requires a lot of listening (cd). I �ve been letting him follow the written script while all the other student �s hears the listening.

He says it helps when I open my mouth wider as I speak for him to understand but I certainly can �t do that the whole class :( It �s been very interesting, he amazes me every time! I just want to be able to help him as much as possible.
