Dear Colleagues,


The National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) is hosting a webinar on August 21, 2018 at 12:00 MT (2:00 ET) on Childhood Hearing Loss: Individualized Intervention and Parent Choice


The webinar is designed to help participants understand more fully the diversity of the population of children who are hard-of-hearing or deaf, the systems that exist that contribute to the provision of early identification and early intervention, the various communication/educational intervention options for identified children and some of the opinions families are likely to encounter as they explore various options. Strategies will be discussed for how to honor and activate parents as the key decision-makers for their child and to ensure that their services are truly individualized and reflective of their hopes and dreams for their child and family.
