This one-day interactive workshop aims to equip you with knowledge on how to check listening ability in babies and young children who are deaf. We will look at how to use the LING sounds across the ages for comprehensive listening assessment. We will also consider the parent journey and how we can best coach and equip parents to develop their child's listening brain and support speech and language development.

The day will focus on learning about auditory verbal strategies for developing speech and language through listening. This will be delivered through presentation, discussion, videos and hands on learning.

You will leave the session with fun, new ideas that you can use to support the babies, children and families with whom you work.

Target Audience

Teachers of the deaf, Speech and Language Therapists, mainstream teachers, support staff in early years settings.
