dc.description.abstractThis thesis illustrates how experiential education, specifically teambuilding games, can be beneficial when used with adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing. Teambuilding games can especially help advance areas of development in which these students are often behind. It discusses the areas of social and cognitive development according to several theorists and how students with hearing impairments fit into those specific theories. Also discussed are the characteristics of experiential education and teambuilding and which of those make it unique for students who are at risk for delays in social and cognitive development. Through researching the various topics, this thesis organizes the information and shows how experiential education can provide a foundation for social and cognitive development in students who are deaf or hard of hearing. The main purpose of this work is to establish a link between these two and present the ideas to appropriate professionals, with the focus on present and future educators of the deaf and hard of hearing. This thesis has also been organized into a workshop form using Microsoft Power Point to facilitate a presentation of the material to professionals to whom this will be useful.en_US
