PI032: Assessing Social-Emotional Functioning of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students

Thursday, February 20, 2014 3:00 PM–3:45 PM


For deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students educated in mainstreamed school settings, interaction with peers plays an important role in the child’s social and emotional development. Due to increasing numbers of DHH students in mainstreamed settings, accurate and valid assessment of a student’s social and emotional functioning is essential. Participants will gain an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of school psychologists and interpreters who conduct social-emotional assessments for students who are DHH.
