USC program helps develop literacy for deaf and hard-of-hearing children from bilingual homes

Summarized by Rachel Cain, staff writer

A summer program in the Los Angeles region is devoted to building and developing literacy skills for deaf and hard of hearing children in bilingual (English-Spanish) families. The three-week program, “Come Read With Me,” is held by the USC Caruso Family Center for Childhood Communication. Over the several weeks, children, parents, and teachers have the opportunity to learn more about literacy and literacy education. The children learn about reading, writing, and awareness of the different sounds of spech; the parents about how to help their children develop their literacy skills; and the teachers about how to effectively teach students who are deaf and hard of hearing.
