||As the only annual conference in RI of professionals, caregivers and students dedicated to improving the lives of children with hearing loss, this event is a key opportunity to learn and collaborate with others in the field and is essential for our providers and families in the New England region. A distinguished faculty of academics and clinicians who specialize in childhood hearing loss will lecture on topics such as: cochlear implants, effects of early bilingual language exposure on the developing brain, mild hearing loss, new JCIH recommendations for early intervention programs and a panel entitled “Communication Choices.”
The seminar’s learning objectives will be covered in both lecture and workshop sessions. Please refer to the itinerary for the full schedule. Registrants will be able to choose which workshops to attend the day of the conference.
