While growing up and learning American Sign Language (ASL) Kyle and Kendall often watch Rachel on Signing Time shows. See what Kyle and Kyndall asked Rachel when they got the chance to interview her for Prince William County Schools TV!

PWCS-TV is proud to offer the stellar “Signing Time” programs on our educational cable channel, daily. Prince William County Schools (PWCS) Hearing Impairment and Deafness Support Services is exploring collaborative opportunities with Two Little Hands Productions to identify funding for new, creative programs that support education of challenged students.

Prince William County Schools offer a range of program options to meet the educational needs of each student, including those with hearing impairment or deafness. The first program option allows students to attend their neighborhood school with services provided through the itinerant program.  A teacher for the hearing impaired works with students individually or in small groups both in and out of the regular education classroom. In addition, the teacher for the hearing impaired works with the classroom teacher to ensure accommodations and modifications for hearing related needs are met.

The second program option is center-based at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.  Teachers for the hearing impaired and teacher assistants are available to the students throughout the day.  Total communication is utilized in the center-based classroom. Certified interpreters are provided to support students as they are mainstreamed in the general education classroom.  All program levels utilize assistive technology
