“I Feel Good!”: A Guide to Support the Mental Health and Well-Being of Children and Youth Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Ontario's Schools is an online resource for parents and professionals supporting children who are Deaf/deaf or hard of hearing at different stages of social and emotional development.
Each section addresses a different topic and can be read as a stand-alone. The sections do not have to be read in sequence. As such, since each section can be read separately, readers might find that some information is repeated.
The sections have been divided according to developmental stages; if your child is not exhibiting behaviours expected for a certain age, refer to the previous section and focus on reinforcing the development of those skills.
Parents and professionals are encouraged to use this Guide in whatever order is best suited for the children they are supporting.
This Guide is one among many resources available. Throughout the Guide, we have provided links to relevant guides and resources where appropriate.
