16th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
February 26-28, 2017 • Atlanta, GA
2/28/2017 | 2:15 PM - 2:45 PM | Developing Language and Listening Skills Through the Use of Daily Routines | Hanover F
Intervention that focuses on teaching children language and listening skills through the use of daily routines is a highly successful way to achieve positive outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Why is it so successful? Because intervention is embedded into the child’s everyday life, gives the family increased “ownership” over intervention, allows for the parent to become the child’s main teacher, and enables the teacher to coach the parent. Children who are deaf or hard of hearing will advance more quickly if the parent and teacher embed strategies into their daily routines. Participants will learn why they should consider teaching through the use of daily routines, what it looks like, how to imbed language & listening goals into daily routines, and how to implement this type of instruction.
- Participants will learn why they should provide instruction through the use of daily routines, and how to embed language and listening goals into instruction through the use of daily routines.
- Participants will learn coaching strategies to increase parent involvement in the planning and implementation of teaching through the use of daily routines.
- Participants will learn how to capitalize on the strengths and diversity of families from other cultures when teaching through the use of daily routines.
