You have a new degree in education or deaf education. And you need guidance for new teachers of young deaf students. How do you find a job and interview for a job? What do you do your first week of teaching? How will you teach deaf students with additional disabilities? What is the best way to communicate with the students? How do you develop their thinking skills? And how do you build relationships with their parents? This guide advises people who are starting their career as teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students.

Some language that describe deaf students with additional disabilities may be outdated. In many countries, people with intellectual disabilities and their families use the term “intellectual disabilities” rather than “mentally retarded.” Terms may vary in different countries.
