The school argued that signing would become a “crutch” and limit a child’s ability to speak and interact with the hearing world (31). While Tressa viewed this as a positive program at the time, she later discovered the importance of sign and how it allowed Alandra to communicate to the fullest extent.

While the residential school has its positives and negatives, it was overall a great way for Alandra to receive a good education and meet other deaf

When administrating the Reading Interest Inventory (Mariotti, n.d.), the Motivations to Read Profile Survey and asking the Conversational Survey Questions (Pitcher, et al., 2007), it gave insight to how Hailey felt about herself as a learner. The questions that stood out in my mind, is how I can help Hailey to be more success in the classroom as well as become a stronger reader overtime? I would like to look more in depth in Hailey’s comprehension skills and provide her educational strategies that will help Hailey to grow in her reading comprehension and give her some tools to help herself when she is having trouble.

Does she understand new vocabulary words and the context around the words?
