Promoting Hearing-Impaired Guidance and Counseling Programme
Hearing impaired children encounter many challenges which are caused by their inability to hear and effectively use oral language.
This has serious implications on their personal, social, educational and career development.
This calls for well-coordinated and informed interventions so as to provide them with competences to enable them live effective lives and develop into responsible citizens despite their handicap.
An effective guidance and counseling programme is determined by teacher counselors and the school administration working together in addressing issues that affect hearing impaired pupils at home, school and later in life thus enabling them to enjoy life like the hearing people.
If proper guidance and counseling interventions are put in place, the hearing impaired pupils will achieve their highest potential in life.
This book by Dorcas Githaiga outlines the guidance and counseling programme determinants for promoting hearing impaired pupils’ development, with Kenya as a study site.
