Professional Issues in Educational Audiology Service Delivery (WEB16023)

Presenter(s): Cheryl DeConde Johnson, EdD; Jane Seaton, MS, CCC-A/SLP; Donna Fisher Smiley, PhD, CCC-A
Course Description

This course includes three recorded sessions from the online conference "Audiology 2016: Collaborative Strategies for Students With Hearing Loss." These sessions focus on professional issues in educational audiology, including current educational policy initiatives and their impact on students with hearing loss; strategies and resources for the transition process from family-centered to center-based, student-driven services; and tools and strategies for defining and articulating your value as an audiologist working with students with hearing loss. The conference included a total of 15 sessions, with the broad goal of providing practitioners practical, outcome-driven strategies, new information, and resources to help bridge the gap between children and teens with hearing loss, their families, and the educational and medical providers who support them. The three sessions in this course are:

  • The Shifting Landscape of Educational Audiology, by Donna Smiley
  • Articulate Your Value: Outcome Measures of School-Based Audiology Services, by Cheryl DeConde Johnson
  • Smoothing the Path: The Transition from Part C to Part B Services, by Jane Seaton
