Self-Contained Classrooms: Advantages and Disadvantages


Self-Contained Classrooms are also provided in public school settings for deaf/HH children.  It is a classroom that contains deaf students and highly trained professionals in the field of deaf education.  Advantages of self-contained classrooms consist of students receiving instruction in the same communication form as fellow peers.  These communication forms may be a sign system or oral English.  However, since self-contained classrooms are located in public schools they may not contain visuals for deaf/HH students.  Therefore, this may be considered a disadvantage because schools may not have TTY access, visual-paging systems, and emergency flashers.
