As an individual interested in the area of Deafness we want to let you know of a unique educational option available to train school psychologist to work with Deaf and hard-of -hearing learners.

The School Psychology program at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) are pleased to announce a jointly sponsored Advanced Graduate Certificate program specializing in School Psychology
and Deafness.  This Advanced Graduate Certificate program is part of the general Masters Program in School Psychology.  The specialized curriculum is carefully articulated with guided intensive instruction in sign communication, as well as with practicum experiences and an internship in a setting that serves Deaf and hard of hearing learners. Some of the courses are open for Distance Learning.

The program is situated at RIT, a "full inclusion campus" with roughly 1,100 Deaf and hard of hearing students out of a total enrollment of 13,000, and is affiliated with NTID's Master of Science in Secondary Education (MSSE) program many of whose
students are Deaf or hard of hearing.

You or someone you know may be interested in this educational opportunity. Please get the word out.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Jennifer Lukomski, PhD, NCSP at (716) 475-6701 (tty or voice), or e-mail
