Deaf Preschooler
I work at a preschool and there is a deaf, non-verbal two year old in one of the classes. This student constantly hits and bites his classmates to get their attention. How can the teacher teach the student different ways to communicate with this classmates?

I really hope you know ASL or have someone who does near the classroom, if so talking through sign language could help. Teaching that student that hitting and biting are not the ways to get attention. If possible you could give the student a toy that makes noise, like a clacker or a buzzer. They might not be able to hear it but they will understand that other people can. Show this student that if they want attention to press the button or shake the clacker and it will bring forth attention to whoever is near them
