    What is this strategy about?
    Chances are, you’ll work with a pupil with hearing loss at some point in your career. Here are some tips on how to prepare to meet their needs effectively.

    How does a hearing impairment affect learning?
    Students with hearing impairments can face a number of challenges in the classroom, especially when it comes to communication. Classroom environments sometimes don't support the needs of students with hearing loss, which can cause them to struggle in class.

    What are the early signs of hearing loss?
    Many people with hearing loss often complain of muffled speech and may ask others to speak more loudly and slowly. If a child in your class has delays in language and communication, these could be signs that the child is not processing sound in the correct way.
