3.Reflect on how we work collaboratively with other key professionals- particularly Teachers of the Deaf.

5. Impact on the therapy you provide to all children with all degrees of hearing loss, including those with conductive losses
“This was one of the best courses I have been on. It was pitched perfectly for therapists and I think gave them confidence and competence for their new role.It was great to have audiology stuff explained in a more accessible way"
