Teaching about sound to the hearing impaired

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by Mulberry146, May 5, 2011.

  1. Hello!
    I was wondering if anyone could help . . . . I have a child in my class (Year 1) who normally wears a cochlear implant but he lost part of it yesterday (it won't be replaced for quite a while). OFSTED are due in on Mon and one of the things I am teaching that day is on the topic of sound - I was going to see if the children could match sounds to pictures- usually not a problem! Our SENCO doesn't work on a Fri so I was wondering if anyone had an idea of something I could give his LSA to work on to do with this topic or a different way I could teach matching sound to objects? Usually I can work these things out but - My brian has shut off for some reason!
    I'm grateful for any advice!
    Thanks

    Have they got a hearing aid/ radio aid in other ear? If so they may well still be able to do the activity with their LSA jsut in a separate area.
    If not could they sort pictures into loud sounds/ quiet sounds?
