Creating Listeners in the Classroom Please Join Us!

This course will focus the audience on the issues of developing auditory skills for the child who is deaf or hard of hearing as he listens and learns in the classroom setting. Beginning with an understanding of basic auditory building blocks for pediatric listeners, participants will connect the use of hearing devices and assistive listening technology to the creation of strong auditory learners in the classroom. A look at instructional time, classroom grouping and curricular demands will set the stage for practical suggestions for maximizing a child’s opportunity to use the cochlear implant for auditory learning. Listening and spoken language strategies will be reviewed in the context of utilizing them for teaching content.
