Music for Children with Hearing Loss

A Resource for Parents and Teachers

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Written by an expert in the field who is both a teacher and a teacher-educator, this book is an in-depth and practical resource for educators and parents who wish to introduce music to children with hearing loss. Author Lyn Schraer-Joiner makes a compelling case for offering music education to children with hearing loss before presenting a series of important and up-to-date teaching strategies meant to inform their educational experience, including preparations for the classroom, communication strategies for parents and teaching staff, and tips on more specific or technical matters such as conducting musical audiograms. These resources provide a solid background for hands-on instructional materials such as music lessons, supplemental activities, educational resources, discussion points, and journal samples for the classroom and home. Schraer-Joiner goes to great lengths to offer detailed, purposeful suggestions for specific classroom settings such as general music, choral ensemble, and instrumental ensemble as well as a set of recommended listening lessons that take this potential variety of settings into account. Furthermore, Schraer-Joiner provides suggestions for incorporating music into everyday activities and also presents an overview of recent research which reinforces the benefits of music upon social and emotional development as well as speech and language development. Each chapter concludes with a section entitled "For Your Consideration" which features review questions, ideas, and instructional activities that teachers and parents can accomplish with deaf and hard of hearing children. The book's "Kids Only" online component provides deaf and hard-of-hearing children with descriptions of the many opportunities available to them in the arts, inspirational case studies and stories, as well as important ideas and topics for deaf and hard-of-hearing children to consider discussing with the teachers, family members, and healthcare professionals that they work with. The message of this book is a powerful one particularly in this day and age. As hearing aid and cochlear implant technologies improve and become increasingly widespread, all teachers--especially music teachers--should expect to see more deaf and hard-of-hearing children in their classrooms. Awareness and preparation are not only vital in aiding these children in the classroom, but are in fact required of teachers by federal law. This book is a comprehensive resource for teachers and parents who wish to gain a better understanding of the emerging field of music education for students with hearing loss.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

»Absurd, komisch, klug, mutig und präzise. Einfach überwältigend.« Hiromi Kawakami Die literarische Sensation aus Japan: Eine Außenseiterin findet als Angestellte eines 24-Stunden-Supermarktes ihre wahre Bestimmung. Beeindruckend leicht und elegant entfaltet Sayaka Murata das Panorama einer Gesellschaft, deren Werte und Normen unverrückbar scheinen. Ein Roman, der weit über die Grenzen Japans hinausweist. Keiko Furukura ist anders. Gefühle sind ihr fremd, das Verhalten ihrer Mitmenschen irritiert sie meist. Um nirgendwo anzuecken, bleibt sie für sich. Als sie jedoch auf dem Rückweg von der Uni auf einen neu eröffneten Supermarkt stößt, einen sogenannten Konbini, beschließt sie, dort als Aushilfe anzufangen. Man bringt ihr den richtigen Gesichtsausdruck, das richtige Lächeln, die richtige Art zu sprechen bei. Keikos Welt schrumpft endlich auf ein für sie erträgliches Maß zusammen, sie verschmilzt geradezu mit den Gepflogenheiten des Konbini. Doch dann fängt Shiraha dort an, ein zynischer junger Mann, der sich sämtlichen Regeln widersetzt. Keikos mühsam aufgebautes Lebenssystem gerät ins Wanken. Und ehe sie sichs versieht, hat sie ebendiesen Mann in ihrer Badewanne sitzen. Tag und Nacht.

With many children who are deaf or hard of hearing now integrated in mainstream classroom settings, speech-language pathologists and school-based clinicians are encountering this population in growing numbers. Enhancing Communication Skills of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children is designed to help clinicians who may have little or no experience with this population to understand its unique communication needs and develop clinical skills for working with them. This important new resource takes a holistic view of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and stresses the child as a communicator rather than focusing on the disorder itself. This book provides a useful framework for viewing and assessing childrens communication abilities and goals at all stages of language development. It also includes specific assessment and treatment techniques to help develop and improve communication skills in order to maximize this populations potential for learning.
