Course Information

Presentation Outcomes:

“Preparing parents of children with hearing impairment including those with additional needs for their “lifetime journey”
In some cases it is very difficult for parents to be committed to the auditory habilitation process of their child following cochlear implantation. This can be for a range of reasons but in most cases it can be linked to ‘attachment’, due to a break down in the expansion of the early warm and loving relationship between the parents and the infant because of two way engagement difficulties.

After this presentation you will have an understanding of:

  • Clarify the difference between ‘bonding’ and ‘attachment’
  • Describe how ‘attachment’ promotes the development of trust, attention span, memory, communication, and language and therefore plays a key role in human development
  • Describe the critical role early listening skills play in enhancing a secure attachment between care-givers and the child
  • Emphasize the importance of intensive habilitation including audiological management that truly has the focus on the parents’ and child’s relationship needs as opposed to ‘speech and language results’
  • Demonstrate that the development of a secure attachment will result in the child over time being more co-operative in all aspects of the habilitation process including mapping and Auditory Verbal Sessions
