Dear Teachers 30 Jul
I will be a new student in your class. I am a hard working, enthusiastic learner. I also have hearing loss.
I have done well throughout school with support in place due to accommodations and awesome teachers with whom I have worked with to ensure barriers are minimized. With access to communication, I consider myself fully enabled to succeed.
There is no one-size-fits-all way to experience hearing loss, and this is my unique journey.
Some people who are deaf, undergo surgery to receive cochlear implants (CI). Some utilize hearing aids. And others use a combination of both.
Listening with a CI or hearing aids is hard work and I sometimes need “hearing” breaks. I also might fidget. I get fatigued as the day goes on.
I look forward to meeting you and I truly appreciate anything you are able to do to make the information more accessible for me.
Please let me know if you have any concerns or questions. With open communication, I am confident that this will be a great academic year!
