Reading is a fundamental skill for all students to master in school—including, of course, our students who have low vision or are blind. But do you ever hear your students say “I’m just not good at reading!” or “Can’t I just listen to this?” or “Reading is no fun”? Do you ever feel as though you have to drag your students through their reading and writing assignments? This series of six one-hour webinars will help you put the SPARK back into reading!

Permanent childhood hearing loss has been known to have a major negative impact on developmental outcomes, at high societal costs. However, no one knew how our management of children affects what they can achieve. Drawing on a population-based study, the Longitudinal Outcomes of Children with Hearing Impairment (LOCHI), we investigated the effectiveness of early intervention for improving outcomes.
The literature on outcomes with cochlear implants in individuals with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder can appear very mixed, making it difficult for clinicians to counsel patients on expected outcomes. This presentation aims to provide clarity around the reasons behind the mixed outcomes, and outline the key identifiers clinicians can use to help determine which sub-group a patient may be in.
