LEND Workshop: Autism Spectrum Disorder and Hearing Loss

April 15, 2014

photoOn Sunday April 13, 2014, over 60 LEND faculty and students participated in an  interactive workshop using active learning  strategies and case-based  discussions about  issues and challenges surrounding hearing loss and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). During the workshop, participants were placed in large and small group settings and were encouraged to share personal examples while learning best practices used by LEND faculty and staff. The workshop, funded by MCHB and organized by the Association of  University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), was a pre-conference activity held in  conjunction with the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) conference in Jacksonville, Florida in partnership with NCHAM. 

All participants were asked to review a related webinar prior to participation in the workshop titled, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. This MCHB/AUCD webinar is currently archived at www.aucd.org/webinars and features presentations by Susan Wiley, MD and Michael Scott, AuD of the LEND program at the Children's Hospital in Cincinnati.
