AVT for the TC Child
July 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$15
Total Communication is an approach that many families of children with hearing loss choose for their child. By definition, total communication is using any means to communicate – sign language, fingerspelling, lip reading, writing, listening, and spoken language. Children often enter total communication classrooms with parents stating they are eager for their child to learn sign language but asking “How will you also facilitate my child’s listening and spoken language skills?” In this session, providers will learn how to incorporate auditory-based strategies into a total communication setting in order to grow a child’s listening and spoken language.
