​​​​​​​VDEI are delighted to provide up-skilling for educational audiology in 2016. Dr Susan Dillmuth-Miller, former president of the Educational Audiology Association in the USA, will host these asynchronous webinars.

Many students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) have the best hearing technology and early intervention. Many environmental factors, however, can significantly challenge their listening and receptive abilities at school.

Dr Dillmuth-Miller will provide the latest qualitative and quantitative tools to assist teachers with identifying and advising additional assistive technology. These tools determine how frequently the technology is needed and in which situations the technology is necessary to maximise the student's access to their education.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this webinar series, participants will be able to:

  • identify barriers to effective listening and participation in the classroom for students who are DHH 

  • help students to  identify and advocate for their own technological needs in the classroom

  • articulate and apply  current research about educational audiology

  • analyse and apply assessment tools and assistive technology to cater the student's needs

  • justify the educational benefits of the assistive hearing technology to schools.
