Speech Acoustics: Plain English


May 16, 2017

Time09.30 to 16.00
Duration1 day
VenueThe Ear Foundation, Nottingham, UK
TicketsStandard Professional : £85.00


Good speech production is an achievable goal for many hearing impaired children but we need to know that their technology, hearing aids or cochlear implants, is giving them good access to the speech frequencies.

This course will look at developing your understanding of how speech sounds are made in the mouth, how this relates to the acoustics of speech and what this has to do with an audiogram. The practical emphasis of the day will be on applying this knowledge to case studies and in developing programmes to develop listening skills diagnostically.

With the opportunity to think about the children you support, this course will be highly relevant for all professionals concerned with giving optimal audition for developing speech
