Wednesday 4th July, 2012
8:30am to 10:00am
The purpose of the Early Hearing, Detection and Intervention (EHDI), within the Universal Newborn Hearing Screening (UNHS) system is to identify deaf/hh babies and to provide families with information. But too often the expertise of people who know the best, deaf/hard of hearing people themselves, are not included or valued. Research shows the importance of deaf adults as language and role models for families. This workshop presents a history, an update of the system, programs and the need to include deaf/hard of hearing adults. Ideas and strategies from panelists will be shared on how you can make a difference in young deaf and/hard of hearing children’s lives in your hometown.
