Cook Children's Webinar: Link Between Listening & Literacy: How Collaboration Maximizes reading Success for Children with Hearing Loss
09/18/2018

What do we know about the potential in children with hearing loss to achieve reading & writing skills similar to that of their typical-hearing peers?  Research from 2000 (Traxler) indicated that 50% of students with hearing loss in the United States had reading capability similar to that of a fourth grader or less.   Research from 2002 (Marschark, Lang & Albertini) indicated that 30% of students with hearing loss in the United States graduated as functionally illiterate.  With the technologies and interventions available in 2018, are children with hearing loss capable of more?  What are the correlations between listening and literacy?  Join us for this one-day workshop highlighting current research, early literacy milestones and the importance of auditory access to all sounds of speech early in life.  Participants will have the opportunity to gain knowledge, collaborate in conversations and engage in video examples.


Our Speakers:
Sara Neumann, Au.D., is an audiologist who also serves as Audiology Research Manager and Deaf Education Consultant at Hearts for Hearing in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma since 2013. She specializes in pediatric audiology and cochlear implants for children and adults and has also participated in several research studies evaluating clinically relevant outcomes with different hearing technologies. She has co-authored several articles and textbook chapters with Jace Wolfe, Ph.D. on pediatric amplification, implantable hearing devices, and cochlear implant programming. Dr. Neumann also specializes in hearing conservation programs in music education including drum and bugle corps and marching bands. She currently consults as the audiologist for Phantom Regiment Drum & Bugle Corps.  She has a B.S. in Deaf Education from Northern Illinois University (2003), serving as a deaf educator for six years. She obtained her Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) from Illinois State University in 2012.

Darcy L. Stowe is a Speech-Language Pathologist and Certified Listening and Spoken Language Specialist (Cert AVT) at Hearts for Hearing in Oklahoma City, Oklahomawith 15 years of experience in working with children with hearing loss and their families.  For many years, she served as the Director of Training and Support Services as well as the Director of Tuition-Based Services at Hearts for Hearing.  Currently, she is the Director of Listening and Spoken Language Specialists at Hearts for Hearing where she oversees the clinical work of a team of dedicated Speech-Language Pathologists who are Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS) or are pursuing certification as a LSLS.


Learner Outcomes: 
  1. Participants will identify three current research facts on outcomes of children with hearing loss.
  2. Participants will identify three development milestones related to literacy development prior to age four.
  3. Participants will identify three reasons why collaboration between a child’s pediatric audiologist and early interventionist is crucial in maximizing reading success for children with hearing loss.
