Current postings – Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (2)
Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Two Positions Available September 1, 2017
Children’s Hearing & Speech Centre of BC (EST. 1963) is a family-focused clinical and educational centre that teaches children who are deaf and hard of hearing to listen and talk, giving them the skills and confidence they need to achieve their fullest potential.
Young children who are deaf and hard of hearing are listening, talking, singing and transitioning into their neighborhood schools with readiness skills and confidence. You can be a part of the team that makes that possible.
Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre of BC (CHSC) is hiring two Master’s level teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing with training and experience in listening and spoken language with young children. The teaching positions will begin in September 2017.
The multi-disciplined staff at CHSC works collaboratively with families to help their young children develop listening, spoken language, and literacy skills commensurate with their hearing peers, so they can speak for themselves. Children at CHSC learn to speak, not sign.
Candidates, first and foremost will have a passion for all that is possible for children who are deaf and hard of hearing. Certified, credentialed teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing will have knowledge and experience in working with young children, to help them develop listening skills in a cognitively-based, developmental and educational setting. Children and their families are supported by a multi-disciplinary team of Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Speech Language Pathologists, an audiologist, early childhood educators, special education assistants, and an Occupational Therapist.
