Webinar: Autism Spectrum Disorder and Children Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
AUCD webinar - February 2014
Funded through the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), the LEND Pediatric Audiology Training Program supports 10 LEND programs to increase the didactic content and clinical experience of trainees in pediatric audiology. This webinar used a combination of information from the literature, retrospective chart review of children with a dual diagnosis and feedback from family and professional focus groups to assist the learner in understanding the unique needs of children who are deaf/hard of hearing with an autism spectrum disorder. Red Flags for atypical communication were presented as well as information about the needs related to communication, functional skills, and integrated care models.
