It is essential that technology provides excellent auditory access. This workshop will discuss the Red Flags that can help identify if technology is doing what we think it is doing. We will discuss how to know if technology is too loud, too soft, or distorted. We will discuss the role of audiologists, speech-language pathologists, auditory therapists and parents in identifying problems with technology.
Children receiving bilateral implants have specific needs with regard to clinical management, particularly when the implants are received sequentially in two separate operations. Some of the issues to be raised in preoperative counseling to ensure families make an informed decision and are prepared for the postoperative period will be reviewed.

Microtia and Atresia are low incidence congenital disorders with, in 90% of cases, the condition being unilateral; therefore support services have been loosely structured and perhaps not always seen as a priority. A combination of Universal Newborn Hearing Screening and changing perceptions as to the educational, behavioural, social and emotional impacts of unilateral hearing loss has resulted in an increased number of families who have children with Microtia and/or Atresia enrolling in
