15th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
March 13-15, 2016 • San Diego, CA
| - | 3 - Language Acquisition and Development
Once a child is diagnosed with a hearing loss, he or she is at risk of speech, language, and listening delays. How can we plan intervention to address an individual child’s and family’s needs? A battery of assessments can help professionals pinpoint specific speech, language, and auditory deficits, as well as track progress towards goals and objectives.
Without individualized assessment, individualized intervention cannot be planned. A variety of assessments exist to address the areas of risk for deaf and hard of hearing children: Speech sounds and intelligibility, receptive and expressive language/vocabulary, conversation skills, and auditory skills in several conditions. Once a child's specific deficits have been determined, a professional can identify goals and plan interventions targeting those specific skills.
The available assessments and purposes will be shared, as well as ways to track progress over time.
- Describe how results of an assessment can be used to write goals and plan interventions;
- Explain the importance of assessments that specifically target areas where deaf and hard of hearing kids are at risk;
- Identify examples of speech, language, and auditory assessments appropriate for a child with a hearing loss and could be integrated into existing assessment batteries.
