for International Students in the United States
University programs in the United States that prepare teachers of children who are deaf or hard of hearing provide both teacher certification and opportunities for research. Teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing in the United States may work in public or private programs. Some students with hearing loss attend state residential schools and private day schools. Larger cities have public school programs that include small classes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing as well as resource programs for children who spend part or all of their time in the regular classroom. Many rural areas serve their deaf or hard of hearing students using sign language interpreters and traveling teachers known as itinerants. University research in the area of deaf education focuses on various aspects of deafness: deaf culture and the deaf community, native signed languages, technology advances, and teaching methods for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
