About the Series

The Ask Abbey series is designed to provide practical, easy-to-use strategies across many areas of instruction for Deaf and Hard of Hearing learners.  Each 30-minute session will include simple tips and strategies, followed by live Q&A with Abbey Weaver, an itinerant teacher for the deaf and hard of hearing in Ohio, and other ‘friends’ who are expert practitioners. Need a new strategy to engage a learner and have a limited time?  Then this series is for you. Professional development credit is available upon completion of the webinar and evaluation.
