Abstract:

Abstract  This paper examines telepractice aural habilitation for school-age children delivered via videoconferencing. It identifies issues, concerns, and successful teaching behaviors and strategies employed in this unique environment. The paper concludes with a description of the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children’s Teleschool and a case study of a 16-year-old cochlear implant user who has received intercontinental auditory-verbal therapy via videoconferencing for 24 months.
