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.

About Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is the partial or extreme loss of a person?s ability to receive information by listening. The most extreme cases of hearing loss are known as deafness, a term used when the hearing loss is so severe a person cannot understand information when listening is the sole means of receiving information.

Early Hearing Detection & Intervention (EHDI) Program

Each year in the United States (U.S.), more than 12,000 babies are born with a hearing loss. The cause of hearing loss for many babies is not known, and hearing loss can go unnoticed for years. When a child?s hearing loss is identified soon after birth, the child?s family and doctors can make sure the child gets services (e.g., intervention) he or she needs at an early age. This will help the child develop communication and language skills that will last a lifetime.

Hearing loss affects 12,000 children born in the United States each year, making it the most common sensory birth difference. Typically, babies and young children learn to talk by listening to the voices of family members and caregivers from the time they are born. Any degree of hearing loss has the potential to interrupt speech and language development.
