Upcoming Events

Drew's Dad posted information on the Bilateral Implants: Updates and Controversies Conference that will take place in May in Columbus, Ohio.

In addition, there are several other upcoming events.

Deaf Initiatives is holding one of their "Navigating Your Childs Future" workshops at the Alexander Graham Bell School in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, March 8th. This class will teach innovative techniques to help parents work with their child who is deaf or hard of hearing to develop the literacy skills necessary for their academic and personal success. Participants will learn appropriate activities that can be utilized to support the development of critical reading skills such as phonemic awareness and phonics. Registration is open and only $10. The best thing of all is that child care is provided free of charge!

The 62nd Annual Ohio Speech Language Hearing Association is holding its annual convention from March 6-8 in Columbus, Ohio. Topics include Childhood Apraxia of Speech: Assessment and Treatment, Language and Literacy, Teaching Listening and Spoken Language and Trends in Pediatric Cochlear Implants, just to name a few. If you would like to attend, you can register the day of the convention.

The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing will be holding its annual convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from June 27th - 30th. Registration is now open. This convention has so much to offer including short courses, exhibitors and product demonstrations.

Thanks for this post, it served as a reminder for me to make a decision as to which Columbus event I want to take part in. I'm leaning towards the one that provides childcare!

Drew's Dad and I will both be attending the Deaf Initiatives presentation. We're looking to it. Hope to see you there!

I'm sure Drew's Sister would enjoy playing with Ethan! They are about the same age.
