TEDI 2 Week 2 - Interview: Facilitating Effective Language and Communication

In this video, Odette Swift once more, interviews the very eloquent Vera-Genevey Hlayisi who discusses how language and communication development can be facilitated in classrooms. She begins by cautioning teachers to beware of the subtle but important regional differences in Sign Language as in any other language and advises that teachers should consider these as they interact with deaf learners. She then discusses ways of facilitating communication between parents and their deaf children. This video lecture 11/11 of week 2 of the course: Educating Deaf Children: Becoming an Empowered Teacher.
