2016 Pre-EHDI Workshop

2016 Pre-EHDI Workshop

Sunday, March 13, 2016- Sunday, March 13, 2016
12:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: San Diego, CA

This workshop will introduce trainees to the various challenges associated with assessing, monitoring, and effectively serving children with hearing loss and additional disabilities in an interdisciplinary context.  It is a unique, interactive learning opportunity that brings together trainees and faculty from across the country. 

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is intended for LEND pediatric audiology trainees who are attending the 2016 Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Meeting and wish to learn more about the intersection of hearing loss and additional disabilities.  LEND audiology faculty are encouraged to register and will be expected to facilitate small group discussions and activities.

Learning Objectives

  1. Trainees will be exposed to clinical concepts (interdisciplinary care coordination, family partnerships, prioritizing needs and interventions, monitoring progress, etc.) that can help them more effectively serve children with hearing loss and additional disabilities.
  2. Trainees will gain and have an opportunity to apply new knowledge about how children with hearing loss and additional disabilities (and their families) access university, community, and state services.

Location

The workshop will take place from 12:00pm to 2:00pm on Sunday, March 13 at the Town & Country Hotel and Convention Center (Pacific Salon 4/5) in San Diego, California, site of the 15th annual EHDI meeting. A complimentary boxed lunch will be available to all those who register by the February 29 deadline.

Materials

Before the workshop, trainees will be required to complete three (3) selected readings, review a brief case example, and answer a set of questions about resources in their community that they could refer this hypothetical family to; this may involve seeking guidance from an audiologist or other health professionals at their home programs.  All materials will be e-mailed to registered participants in advance.  Please contact Ben Kaufman at AUCD with questions.
