Written by Elaine Ernst Schneider and Illustrated by Tom Dineen. This book is part of The Special Kids in School Series and is a must-have for every counselor, teacher, school nurse, parent, or caregiver. This beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read storybook tells the story of Jacob, a kid living with a hearing impairment. Through Jacob's story, readers learn about sign language, interpreters, hearing aids and speech therapy for kids with hearing impairments. When read aloud, other children can start to identify why a peer with a hearing impairment may be treated differently and begin to empathize with the peer. In addition, children with a hearing impairment or children who have conditions that set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Book includes a Kid Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. 32 pages, softcover.
