(ASL sign for School)
Welcome to my classroom! My name is Ms. Lindsay Wanko. I am the Teacher of the Deaf here at JFK. In our school this year, we have deaf students ranging from pre K- grade 3.
Presently, we have a self-contained, Total Communication (TC) classroom in JFK. TC involves an integration of listening, speech reading, speech, American Sign Language, Signed English, and text. The goal of this program is to provide for and develop a communication system that will allow our students to fully integrate in all academic and social areas. Our services also include an interpreter who goes to all specials, lunch/recess and mainstream time with our students.
Our students spend time with their hearing peers as well as have time for intensive language development and growth. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our Program.
