The challenges of children with mild/moderate hearing loss and their families and teachers are subtle, and may not be easily apparent. However, there is increasing evidence that the impact of such a loss can be significant both at home and at school. These children mishear, misunderstand and their language and social/emotional development may be delayed. Yet these are the children whose needs may not be immediately apparent, and where services may be cut at times of financial scrutiny. This presentation will explore current research into the impact of a mild/moderate hearing loss on family life, social life and educational attainments, and what the implications are for practice.

“As a teacher of the deaf, back in 1989, I never dreamt that I would see the changes in opportunities for deaf children brought about by cochlear implantation. It’s a privilege to have observed the dramatic changes in opportunities offered by today’s hearing technologies, particularly cochlear implants, for deaf children and adults”. The Ear Foundation has led the way in the provision of cochlear implants for children since it’s founding in 1989, and continues to do so in 2017. As the past CEO of The Ear Foundation, I lead a great team in ensuring that the potential of the technology is reached in everyday life. My previous work in education, managing Nottingham Cochlear Implant Programme for 15 years, delivering clinical services and participation in qualitative research gave me the background to run such an exciting and diverse Third Sector organisation. Having now left this role I am delighted to have the opportunity to share my experiences by giving these talks for RIDBC.
These are convenient and accessible and can be accessed at anytime. These sessions are presented by International and National experts including RIDBC staff. All the courses are accredited by the BOSTES and many are also accredited by Audiology Australia and AG Bell.
