For young people who are deaf
or hard of hearing, social capital can have a buffering effect against adverse
life outcomes. This presentation will explain social capital, summarize
research that Dr. Duncan co-investigated related to social capital of
adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing, and suggest instructional
considerations for developing social capital.
During this session participants will:
- Informally assess social capital characteristics of adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Differentiate barriers and facilitators of social capital of adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Plan an activity that will facilitate the development of social capital of an adolescent who is deaf or hard of hearing.
