Karen Appelman and Judy Callahan, Directors of Northwest School For Hearing-Impaired Children, worked together in the public school system from 1973-1980.  While lecturing at the University of Washington, Karen and Judy, co-authored the textbook Teaching the Hearing-Impaired Through Total Communication on successful techniques they had developed for teaching deaf and hard of hearing children. These techniques result in complete, original English sentences from D/HH students, as well as grade level achievement and growth in self-confidence. With these skills, deaf and hard of hearing students are given the opportunity to become an active, successful part of hearing society.
