A Psycho-Social Aspects of Deafness course is frequently offered to hearing students in programs focusing on education, counseling, or social work with the deaf. At the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, it is offered to deaf students at the undergraduate level. The goals of the course are to enhance understanding of the impact of deafness on educational, psychological, emotional, and social development. The focus of this course is directed both to the cognitive domain, and the affective domain in terms of the expression and understanding of feelings, attitudes and values associated with the impact of hearing loss on the lives of deaf students and significant others within their social milieu. Course content, project description, and effective approaches for implementing this type of course in high schools, colleges and other programs serving deaf students are presented.
