Course Description
This intermediate level course was designed to teach SLPs and teachers of the deaf techniques for capitalizing on auditory information made available to children with a cochlear implant and/or hearing aid. This course features an overview of the CID SPICE 2nd Edition auditory training curriculum for children ages 2+. Attendees with the original SPICE will still be able to utilize lessons from the course. Topics include strategies for speech perception/auditory development and methods to improve perception from detection through comprehension of connected speech. Participation in the workshop includes video demonstrations, classroom observations and opportunities for hands-on practice and data collection.
