Students from DePaul School for Hearing and Speech transition into the mainstream of education at the earliest point at which they are ready to make the transition. Mainstreaming DePaul students are sometimes placed in classrooms in classrooms with teachers that often have very little background or experience in teaching a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Consequently, these teachers frequently request in-service training to help them manage the assistive devices which the students use in the classroom.
Training in the use of the FM or DM system, basic knowledge of how the cochlear implant or hearing aid works as well as strategies to ensure a successful transition and best practices for teaching students who are deaf are all frequently requested topics for in-service training as our students make the transition to mainstream education.
