Join us for the next Auditory Verbal Clinical Excellence Network meeting taking place on Thursday 25 April 2019. 

We are lucky enough to have Ena Nielsen coming all the way from the Ida Institute in Denmark to speak with us about Support for Children with Hearing Loss and Their Families: Ida Institute Paediatric Tools

Research shows that children with hearing difficulties may face unique challenges with mastering social and emotional development in addition to the challenges related to hearing and communication. This talk will cover how paediatric hearing care professionals can work with the principles of self-determination and theory of mind to support the child’s development of coping skills and strategies.

Participants will be introduced to the Ida Institute “My World” tool which is based on the principles of self-determination. The tool is designed to help the child describe how well they are communicating in settings that are important to them, explore alternative strategies and behaviours and develop self-efficacy and self-management skills. Participants will also learn about “My Turn to Talk for Parents”, a tool designed to help parents prepare for their child’s appointments and make sure they receive the information that is important to them. Ethnographic videos and cases will be used to discuss the challenges faced by children with hearing loss and their families and how to best support them.

We also have a two part workshop focussing on the Function of Challenging Behaviour and what tools and strategies we can use to support parents in this area. This workshop is designed to be collaborative and interactive with case studies and knowledge sharing between professionals.

This CEN has been approved by AG Bell for 5.5 CEUs
