Recorded Webinar

The number of children who have deaf-blindness (DB) and receive a cochlear implant is increasing each year; however, little is known about outcomes in this complex group of children. This presentation will present data on 8 children whose intervention focused on specific in-home caregiver training. Data collected over 12 to 15 in-home sessions and results from the analysis of this data will be reported. From these findings, evidence-based practice guidelines will be discussed along with intervention strategies to effectively work with this diverse population.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE IS NO LONGER CEU ELIGIBLE.
