At Gallaudet University, a large percentage of the clinical case load consists of culturally Deaf adults. (Note: The “d” is capitalized when we refer to culturally Deaf adults.) To successfully meet the needs of this population, we are committed to providing culturally sensitive aural rehabilitation services. In this article, we will describe some of the ways in which we address the communication challenges of Deaf individuals, including modifications in the assessment procedures and protocols as well as the intervention approaches we use. Finally, we will discuss some of the implications of our approaches which may be useful for other communication professionals.
