Day 1 will focus on Auditory Therapy with an emphasis on Literacy. Presentations will focus on identity, culture, and modality of deaf children and their families, a new era of reading achievement for children with hearing loss who use listening and spoken language. Also covered will be developing a higher level of literacy for children with hearing loss and evaluation and treatment for children with single sided deafness.
Day 2 will focus on Audiology with presentations to cover topics such as the amplification & audiological management of CMV, single sided cochlear implants in children, pediatric fitting considerations for non-surgical transcutaneous bone conduction hearing devices, and advances in hearing assistive technology for HAs and CIs.
