About the Webinar Series

More than 31 million Americans have some type of hearing problem. Each day, 33 infants are born in the United States with significant hearing loss, making it the most frequently occurring birth defect. The impact of delayed diagnosis and intervention in children with hearing loss compromises speech, language, cognitive and social skills.

Funded through the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), the AUCD LEND Pediatric Audiology Training Program has enabled 11 LEND programs to increase the didactic content and clinical experience offered to trainees in pediatric audiology.

This webinar series will identify activities designed to promote leadership, cultural diversity, interdisciplinary collaboration, and family centered services among pediatric audiology trainees. Participants will also learn about challenges faced by LEND audiology programs and strategies used to address these challenges. Finally, webinar participants will receive information on useful resources and research developed by recipients of the LEND Pediatric Audiology Training Sub-award.
