Inclusion of siblings in therapy sessions can be challenging. It can also be fun and doable, and alleviate the concerns of the parent that therapy is all about the child with the hearing loss and their feelings of leaving the other children out. This presentation explores some of those dynamics and offers examples of how siblings can be incorporated into therapy and communicative learning activities with children in auditory-verbal therapy.
