Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC) will hold a series of free seminars to support families who have a child with single-ear hearing loss this year.

Parents of children with unilateral hearing loss can often find it difficult to find appropriate support to best help their children.

The free session will provide parents with information packs and advice from speech pathologists and teachers about audiological and language assessments.

“The topics covered include understanding unilateral hearing loss and its potential effects and strategies to promote positive outcomes for listening,” said Head Audiologist at RIDBC Jim Patrick Audiology Centre, Genelle Cook.
 
“RIDBC’s next information session will help parents and carers understand how they can make the best possible use of the hearing their children do have.”

Sessions will be held throughout the year and are limited to seven places per session.  To book your place please call 02 9872 0347 or email clare.leamore@ridbc.org.au.

Sessions are held at the Welwyn Centre at RIDBC’s North Rocks Campus and the Australian Hearing Hub at Macquarie University.
