Course Information

Remediating Speech Using a Listening and Spoken Language Framework

Children with hearing loss can now be identified at birth, fitted with auditory technology by 3 months of age, engaged with their families in intervention programs by 6 months, and can develop speech on par with their hearing age peers. Some children, however, for a variety of reasons, miss these developmental milestones. Perhaps they were identified late, or have additional challenges, presenting with complex needs. Their speech development may require a more structured approach, but one that can still focus on connecting development with audition.

The course series covers speech remediation principles and strategies for children with hearing loss who may be at risk for acquiring speech through a typical, developmental process. Each course in the series covers one speech aspect, focusing on remediating that aspect using a listening and spoken language framework. Each course presents the features of the speech aspect, speech acoustics, typical development and common error patterns, facilitating contexts, remediation strategies, and research. Courses will include video case studies and tools for assessment and remediation of each speech aspect.

Dates to be confirmed.
