The Development of Language & Related Cognitive Skills in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children: Implications for Practice
Presented by Maryam Salehomoum M.A.,CCC-SLP
Hearing loss of any type and degree increases the risk of language and literacy delays and differences in children. Due to the relationship between language and other developmental domains, the effect of hearing loss may extend to areas of development beyond audition, speech, language, and literacy. Although there is consensus among educators regarding the importance of an early age of exposure to language, professionals working with deaf children and their families are divided in their specific approach to intervention.
This workshop will address issues related to:
- The critical age for language development,
- The effect on related cognitive skills
- The two polarized approaches to intervention ( oral-auditory vs. natural sign language)
- A proposed model of intervention.
- The presentation will reference current legal mandates, which have a direct impact on the education of deaf & hard of hearing children
3 hours of Califronia SLPAHADB Contuning Professional Development & ASHA Ceritification Maintence hours will be offered.
