  • 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.

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder in Children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
    The 2014 LEND Pediatric Audiology Pre-EHDI Workshop

    Join us for this interactive workshop designed to encourage active learning and case-based discussions. Participants will learn about issues and challenges surrounding hearing loss and autism spectrum disorder while learning about strategies currently used by LEND programs. At the workshop, participants will be placed in large and small group settings and will be encouraged to share personal examples while learning best practices used by other LEND programs.

The ITAC website contains news, resources, and information tailored for LENDs and DPBs as well as the medical and public health communities and families of children with ASD/DD.
