When we talk about your child’s hearing, we’re talking about so much more than their little ears.
Hearing is about your child’s brain! In this webinar designed specifically for families, you can learn more about the relationship between your child’s hearing loss, their hearing technology, the development of your child’s auditory brain, and reaching your goals of listening and talking.
Watch Dr. Carol Flexer, an internationally recognized expert on pediatric audiology, connect the dots between basic brain biology, how we learn to talk and read, and what that means for your child with hearing loss. You’ll get specific tips you can use to develop a plan for talking to adults and children about your child’s hearing loss. By explaining the connection between hearing and their brain, you can help the important people in your child’s life understand your Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) goals and help you get there.

About Living LSL
This webinar is part of Living LSL: A Family Learning Series. These free learning opportunities were designed specifically with parents in mind so you’ll have the skills and know-how to confidently raise your child with hearing loss to listen, talk, and achieve their dreams. We’re sharing what the parenting books likely didn’t prepare you for by covering the essentials of LSL and spelling out the important need-to-know aspects of teaching a child who is deaf or hard of hearing to listen and talk.
