Program Description

Today's classrooms are complicated listening environments. Education technologies offer a variety of listening sources that can create access challenges for students with speciallistening needs. During this webinar, Eileen Peterson, an Educational Audiologist identifies some audio sources within the educational setting and provide information to help you "patch" sound sources together to connect students with the sounds they need to hear.

Eileen has provided Educational Audiology support for the past 28 years for students in Maine who have hearing loss. She is the state's only Educational Audiologist working through the Maine Educational Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Public School Outreach and Early Childhood and Family Services programs. She has also worked in clinical private practice and taught in two university settings.

The target audience for this webinar includes teachers, special educators, teachers of the deaf, speech-language pathologists, special education directors, audiologists, student disabilities co-ordinators, and parents of children who use hearing assistance technologies.
