Incidental Learning and Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing: Expanded Core Curriculum
In this OCALICON session, presenters discussed how incidental information impacts the life of a person who is deaf or hard of hearing and how the identified areas, and explicitly taught skills, associated with the Expanded Core Curriculum for Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (ECC-DHH) play a role. The ECC-DHH was developed to help educational teams use a more holistic approach in the planning process to meet the unique needs of students by supporting overall development and achievement. Research has shown that a lack of access to incidental information impacts both formal and informal learning and connections with others in every aspect of a person’s life.
