  • Identify components of a framework for planning auditory intervention with children who are deaf/hh in the later stages of LSL development (the Auditory Learning Guide, part 2) and concurrent behaviors in speech and language.
  • Develop lesson plans for LSL intervention including selection of appropriate auditory goals, activities, auditory strategies and carry-over ideas for home and classroom intervention.

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.
