Beyond Amplification: Building Self-Advocacy in Children with Hearing Loss

Experience Overview

Students with hearing loss can learn to advocate for their hearing and listening needs to live well. This advocacy journey starts early with parents and professionals supplying a strong foundation and the necessary tools for students to speak up and problem solve for their communication needs.  This learning experience will explore underlying social and emotional development including factors of identity, self-concept, social communication, and self-advocacy that are important considerations for students with hearing loss. Learners will gain strategies and resources to support social-emotional wellness and promote self-advocacy and personal responsibility for young children through teens with hearing loss. Carrie Spangler, Au.D. CCC-A, Educational Audiologist, will share personal perspectives of living well with hearing loss and advocacy.

The Hearing First Learning Philosophy

Hearing First supports a learning model of Seek-Sense-Share. (Jarche, 2012) This model supports a complete cycle of learning to promote change in LSL living and practice. Learners seek new knowledge, make sense of it by applying, practicing, reflecting and collaborating then share back ideas and experiences with others. We believe this connected online learner-driven approach will equip families and professionals with the essential knowledge and skills to improve LSL outcomes for young children and their families.
