Advanced Management of Complex Cases: Autism

Course: #26735Level: Intermediate 1 Hour 217 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

This course is the fourth virtual training in the series: Advanced Management of Complex Cases and will focus on Autism. The amount of children being diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum has increased at an alarming rate the last 10-15 years. With the high comorbidity of Autism and Profound hearing loss, it is critical for Audiologists working with these children to educate themselves on their unique needs. Ultimately this will lead to the best hearing and language outcomes.

There is some fading in and out of the audio during this course, and it does improve at about 18 minutes into the event.
