Welcome to Hearing - WATI - Part II. Hearing - WATI - Part I addressed the challenges facing students who are deaf or hard of hearing when accessing auditory information at school, including students' abilities and difficulties, environmental considerations, and tasks. The goal of the current module is to identify assistive technology tools for students who are deaf or hard of hearing that can provide access to auditory information in a variety of environments. These technologies improve accessibility to information that most people gain through their hearing. The module will describe these technologies and give general recommendations for selecting technology, implementing technology, and assessing the benefits.
