Division 7 is sponsoring the Short Course “Infants and Toddlers With Hearing Loss: A Collaborative Management Strategy” at ASHA Convention. We will be presenting the course—Short Course 09—Friday, November 17 from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. Following is a description.
As universal newborn hearing screening is mandated by more and more states, the average age of identification and intervention will continue to decrease (Arehart, Yoshinaga-Itano, Thompson, Gabbard, & Brown, 1998; Prieve & Stevens, 2000; Dalzell et al., 2000). The need for the development of concise, unambiguous feedback among audiologists, parents, and speech-language pathologists regarding the development of auditory and speech-language skills in infants and toddlers newly fitted with amplification will become critical to creating optimal outcomes for early identified babies. Unfortunately, most pre-professional programs provide only minimal education to audiologists and speech-language pathologists in these areas. Too often, the one aural rehabilitation class that audiologists and speech-language pathologists are required to take covers topics such as listening devices and related technology, auditory training, speech-reading and communication strategies that are of little practical benefit in monitoring the performance of very young children with amplification. As a result, audiologists and speech-language pathologists seldom have a shared practical perspective with which to compare performance with amplification or the development of auditory skills in young children. Thus, the professionals who are viewed by parents as being resources for information are sometimes unprepared to provide functional feedback to the parents or even to one another.
