Hashtag Hearing Diary

1. This workshop covers the practice of documenting the progress of early listeners through creative journaling and sharing. The LittlEARS Diary by MED-EL Corporation will be the compass that guides this presentation on how to effectively document the first years of listening and language acquisition. The LittlEARS Diary gathers information about early auditory, speech and language development. It is both a record book for families and an assessment tool for documenting early development of children with hearing loss. This presentation will also cover a parent’s perspective on social media resources which provide support, education and community for families of children with hearing loss. Participants will also learn how one parent transformed her diary into a social media platform and a tangible memory book that could be shared with family members, other parents of children with CI’s and hearing professionals.

  • 1. Participants will identify and describe activities that target the Listening hierarchy
  • 2. Participants will identify social media resources available for candidates, families and educators that support language development.
  • 3. Participants will locate at least 3 key resources on www.medel.com
