Time: 10 am - 4 pm
Fee: £110

NOTE - closing date for course is 7th January 2019


This one-day course in speech acoustics aims to increase understanding about auditory potential for speech and language.

  • Learn how to read the audiogram diagnostically in order to understand the possibilities and limitations of a child's hearing.
  • Develop your analysis of speech errors and how these relate back to hearing.
  • Study "red flags" case examples of children who are not developing linguistically and relate this back to hearing.

Consider how you can equip parents with this essential knowledge so that they too can become experts in ensuring that their child has all they need to develop spoken language.

Target Audience

Teachers of the deaf, teachers working in mainstream settings with deaf pupils, speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, support staff, social workers.
