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! Each webinar will present information
Personal experiences as a parent and TOD have placed me into situations where I have seen first-hand the struggles children of all ages and across all sectors and in all areas (health, education & wellbeing) with Otitis Media. The Hope seminar will provide participants with details of the project, real life testimonials where the success of this unique program has made a difference to so many children, teachers, schools and communities.
What do we know about literacy and listening/speech/language outcomes in this population? What are the basic concepts (e.g. print skills, phonological awareness) that we need to understand to discuss this issue? This lecture will explain how to choose activities for use in therapy and at home including experience books and other resources. Strategies and techniques that professionals can use for parent coaching and to promote family engagement will also be provided.
Spoken language outcomes of children who received cochlear implants (CI) are highly variable. The extent to which variability in outcomes may be related to demographic variables and device configuration (unilateral CI, bimodal, or bilateral CI) was not known. To address the gap of knowledge, this talk draws on a population-based study in Australia that investigated factors influencing longitudinal outcomes of children with hearing impairment (the LOCHI study ).
The study included
This series of 6 lectures will feature case studies of complex and challenging audiology cases.
This online lecture series focused on the role of the Itinerant Support Teacher: Hearing as they support students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH) in the mainstream classroom.
With full national coverage of Universal Newborn Hearing Screening Programs in Australia and increased access to information about hearing loss and management options through early intervention service providers and the electronic media, more parents of babies with severe-profound hearing loss have the opportunity and knowledge to seek very early cochlear implantation for their baby (before 12 months of age). Early intervention service providers have an important role to play in assessing
The potential for the Infant Monitor of vocal Production (IMP) (Cantle Moore, 2004, 2009, 2013) to promote parent education, and inform parent-professional decision making in early intervention for neonatal hearing loss, has been highlighted in a longitudinal series of pilot studies monitoring the nature and pace of infant vocal development as a function of hearing experience (Cantle Moore, 2008, 2011).
When parents struggle with a complex decisions regarding the health care of their child, service providers can become facilitators for addressing difficult change. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is “a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change.” This presentation introduces participants to MI as an efficacious approach to working with individuals facing difficult change. The basic “spirit” of MI, its core skills, and its positive
