July 8, 2016. - 9:00 am to 5:00 pm -  "Understanding Childhood Hearing Loss: Whole Family Approaches to Living and Thriving" by pediatric audiologist Dr. Brian Fligor.

Hosted at Hamilton East Public Library, Noblesville, Indiana. This is for professionals who work with families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (Audiologist, Speech-Language Pathologists, Deaf Educators, Early Interventionists and other professionals). Cost is $30. Contact Alyssa Rex, Au.D. at 317.233.1264 for more information. 

Dr. Fligor’s book stresses that the aim of evaluation and intervention is to break down the barriers and ‘give the child with hearing loss access to language’. He discusses how managing hearing loss in children should be family-centered and requires teamwork between parents and all professionals involved with the child. The information he shares about the social-emotional aspects of growing up with hearing loss gives essential guidance to families to help support their children reach their full potential. This workshop will also provide information regarding “filling the gap” for audiologists communicating with families.
