FLCC to host workshop on supporting deaf students

Finger Lakes Community College will sponsor a free workshop Tuesday, April 17, to offer strategies for supporting deaf students’ literacy development at all ages.

Susan Lane-Outlaw, assistant professor at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at the Rochester Institute of Technology, will lead the workshop. It starts at 9:30 a.m. with refreshments followed by the program from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in room B440 on the fourth floor of the main campus, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. An interpreter will be available.

During this workshop, participants will explore the relationship between language and literacy development. A majority of the time will be spent looking at hands-on strategies and activities that will support deaf students’ literacy development in any class.

Susan Lane-Outlaw has more than 15 years of K-12 deaf education experience. Her research focuses on language and literacy use in classrooms with deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Her visit is sponsored by the FLCC Department of Developmental Studies.
