Inside Teaching Special Education - Hearing Impairments

The National Technical Institute for the Deaf estimated that, as recently as 2011, there were over 28 million individuals, including one million children, with some level of hearing loss in the United States (www.ntid.rit.edu). To teach special needs students, including learners with hearing impairments, every state has licensure requirements. It is also necessary that candidates hold at least a bachelor's degree and complete a training program for teachers. Some states also require individuals to pass certification exams, participate in student teaching or undergo a background check.
