Susan Kavanagh
Audiologists

The Audiology Chapter of the UFT represents audiologists working for District 75 and also for Committees on Special Education throughout the five boroughs. Our mission is to ensure that hearing-impaired and deaf students get the services they need to excel in all areas of academic life.

Our District 75 audiologists provide hearing assistive technology to students, and training and support to their teachers. They work closely with Hearing Education Services teachers to ensure that students have access to the curriculum and that they are getting the support they need to participate fully in school life.

Our CSE audiologists work closely with parents, educators and clinical audiologists from hospitals throughout the city to ensure that hearing-impaired and deaf students are identified and evaluated for appropriate services as early as possible.

We work hard to ensure that hearing-impaired and deaf children in our schools get the recognition and understanding they need.

Fraternally,

Susan Kavanagh
Chapter Leader

$5.8B in student debt being erased for the disabled

More than 323,000 borrowers with significant or permanent disabilities will be relieved of a total of about $5.8 billion in student debt beginning in September, the U.S. Education Department announced.

‘Bring it on!’

Former paraprofessional Sherwin Persaud made the transition to teacher last school year, finding his niche working with autistic children and those with behavioral issues in the early grades at P233 in Forest Hills, Queens.

Special ed evaluation & services

All students suspected of having a disability should be identified, located and evaluated. Referral for special education evaluation should not, however, be the first response to pandemic-related learning loss or readjustment issues.
