VDEI is hosting a full day seminar on the latest trends in audiology and hearing technology. The presenters are from the Department of Education and Training (DET), Australian Hearing, and the Cochlear Implant Clinic.
The seminar will provide an update on the latest developments in audiology and assistive hearing technology. The benefits and limitations of this technology in school settings will also be explained.
Attendees are expected to have an understanding of audiology and assistive hearing technology. This seminar will benefit various professionals working with children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH).
After this seminar, participants will be able to:
• identify and use the technology and acoustic support that the three agencies offer
• articulate how the hearing technology can be individualised to cater the needs of students who are DHH
• network with DET, Australian Hearing, and the Cochlear Implant Clinic
• incorporate and transfer these developments into their practices
