Parents will be reassured that, despite a loss of balance and confidence after the initial diagnosis, they will be able to regain their self-confidence and continue to be the world’s best expert for their own child.

For experts

Speech and language pathologists, early intervention therapists and teachers of the deaf will learn about the most effective way to structure a meeting with a family of a hearing-impaired child.

The topic

The presentation will hold concise guidelines on the aspects of of initial counseling which can provide the courage and drive parents need while trying to come to terms with their child’s diagnosis of hearing loss. It will become clear how children can benefit from this approach from the very first months of life. We will approach the subject from a closer angle via an interaction with the audience, building on their experience and questions.
