Hearing Problems in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

In March, VDEI will welcome Professor Gary Rance from the University of Melbourne Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology to present on the subject of Hearing Problems in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This face-to-face presentation will explore the relationship between sensory processing and ASD, with a focus on hearing.

Professor Rance will discuss three studies conducted by the university to demonstrate research findings in relation to hearing and ASD. The first two studies were conducted to explore the impact of personal listening systems and noise cancelling devices to improve speech perception in noise. The third study focused on the effect of auditory interventions on communication-related stress.

This presentation will be approximately one hour in length with an opportunity for questions. Registration is available for face-to-face attendance or remote access.
