 Resource Rooms: Advantages and Disadvantages


Partial mainstreaming allows deaf/HH students to partake in general education classes; as well as, classes only with their deaf peers.  An example of partial mainstreaming would be a resource room.  Advantages of resource rooms allow students the opportunity to communicate with deaf and hearing individuals.  It also allows students to receive instruction from an oral and sign approach.  However, one might find resource rooms to be a disadvantage because their non-core subjects only take place in a regular classroom; whereas their core subjects take place in a resource room.  As a result, researchers believe the dual environment can generate challenges for the child.  In the end, if a child is being placed in a resource room it is important fro both instructors to consult and collaborate with one another to provide the best method of teaching for the child.
