When a child has a hearing loss, we often focus on the impact for listening and speaking. We know for children to reach their potential, this support can be vital.
But humans don’t operate simply as a pair of eyes, ears or hands; we are a complex interdependent system. With the help of professionals from occupational therapy, psychology, education and speech and language therapy – this one day conference will consider children as a whole.
We’ll explore how children and teenagers:
- Access and process information through all of the senses
- Plan, remember and think critically
- Develop physical dexterity and balance.
Join us, as we gain new knowledge and develop insights into how hearing loss impacts a child as a whole.
