Deaf Kids Talk

At A Glance

JWPOSD offers the unique opportunity to visiting professionals, a hands-on experience to teaching a deaf student to speak, listen and think as they learn hand-in-hand from master teachers while they enrich their practicum and student teaching experience.  

We gladly receive teachers in training from local, state, national and international, public and private agencies to complete their professional requirements.


At the regional level, teachers from local universities are able to complete practicum hours for their Exceptional Children, Auditory, Language and Speech courses. Spring and fall sessions are also an opportunity for student-teaching placements under the supervision and guidance of a master teacher.  JWPOSD has hosted teachers in training from institutions such as San Francisco State University, San Jose State University, and Fresno State University to name a few.


At the national level, distinguished institutions such as Smith College have benefited from three week of immersion into the classes and therapy sessions of JWPOSD to experience the different programs we offer within the Leahea Grammatico Family Center for infants and their families, and the preschool and Kindergarten settings.


For those already working in the regular and special education settings wishing to learn more about deafness and its academic implications, JWPOSD offers an annual workshop designed for the needs of regular and special education teachers and staff working with deaf and hard of hearing students in the world of inclusion. 

Finally, the teaching and training capacity of JWPOSD has also crossed the borders to Mexico and Argentina providing in-service sessions, workshops and lectures to address the needs of the children and staff in the hosting areas.
