Distance Learning

Within two days of the county stay-at-home order in March, WCC implemented a comprehensive distance learning program that incorporated:

  • Live Zoom classes
  • Prerecorded specialized listening and spoken language-focused video sessions including classes for music and reading
  • Homework assignments
  • Parent activity logs
  • Daily teletherapy 
  • Direct family consultations

A New Way To Learn

100% of Weingarten families participated in distance learning. For children ages 2 – 6, distance learning required parents to take a central role; our tradition of family-centered education was extremely helpful to families and staff. Thanks to our audiologist and school district partners, students’ hearing technology was optimized for distance learning and electronically linked to families’ computers where feasible. Based on eight years of Baby Talk Teletherapy experience, our staff had skills and technology required to so rapidly implement a comprehensive and effective distance learning program.

Transitioning Back

Distance learning and socialization are particularly challenging for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, and we have transitioned most classes and families back to on-campus class and therapy. We remain prepared to cycle back to distance learning by cohort or in full as circumstances require.
