The Victorian Deaf Education Institute presented accredited ELKLAN speech and literacy support workshops to Educational Support (ES) staff who provide oral language and literacy support to deaf students on 29 January and 1 February 2013.
The program included the following modules: defining hearing loss; communication; communication and the child with hearing loss; supporting the language and social skills of the child with hearing difficulties; and supporting the listening and phonological development of the child with hearing difficulties.
Presenter Helen Harrington-Johnson, experienced speech pathologist, audiologist, accredited ELKLAN trainer and Statewide Program Manager of VDEI, presented the workshops. Helen has wide clinical experience in the paediatric fields of hearing impairment, multiple disability and autism within early intervention and with school age children.
Due to popular demand, we will be offering more ELKLAN workshops later in the year. If you are interested in taking part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
