Conference Information

The conference will focus on practices, technologies, and innovations that affect the education of Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and emphasize how these are changing and can improve outcomes for children. Speakers will cover the impact of identification of reduced hearing sensitivity among infants who are born Deaf or Hard of Hearing, implications for implementation of effective supports and services early in the lives of infants and toddlers and their families, longer term impact of early identification and early intervention, trends evident since cochlear implantation has become the widely accepted standard of care in the medical field, guidelines available to school-teams for addressing communication access needs of Deaf and Hard of Hearing students, and strategies and technologies that professionals can apply to ensure increased student access to instruction and meaningful participation in school settings. Home and community environments differ from school environments. The presenters will also address the impact of reduced hearing sensitivity on listening in the home, challenges Deaf and Hard of Hearing children face in navigating socially, and strategies and devices that help optimize communication access in home and community settings. The day-long course will include lecture-style presentations and the opportunity for interactive question and answer dialogue.
