Westward Look Resort in Tucson, Arizona

Faculty will share research about the education of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children. Keynote speakers Shirin Antia (University of Arizona), Amy Lederberg and Susan Easterbrooks (Georgia State University), and Brenda Schick (University of Colorado, Boulder) will present the outcomes and research of the Center on Literacy and Deafness (CLAD), a multi-university center funded by the Institute of Educational Sciences since 2012. The CLAD mission is to identify the factors influencing literacy and language development in young deaf children and to develop and research interventions that enhance language and literacy learning.
Attendees will include about 200 university and college faculty from the U.S. and Canada and other countries who prepare teachers of DHH students. Approximately 60 universities and colleges that have programs in teacher preparation for DHH students will be represented.
