AG Bell Listening and Spoken Language Symposium – July 2009

Submitted by Paula Rosenthal on April 4, 2009 – 10:24 pm13 Comments

The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing will be hosting their 2009 Listening and Spoken Language Symposium in St. Louis, MO at the St. Louis Union Station Marriott July 23-25. The program is designed for professionals working with children and adults who are deaf or hard of hearing and use listening and spoken language.

This year’s theme is Executive Function (EF) – a critical aspect for children to learn how to learn. Vital to the development of problem solving, social competence and academic readiness, EF is a cognitive (thinking) process that influences and controls behavior such as working memory, organizational strategies and inhibition.

Understanding EF is essential for professionals working with children with hearing loss. In spite of early hearing detection and intervention and the dramatic advancement of hearing technologies, some children who are deaf or hard of hearing continue to exhibit learning challenges while others are not maximizing their potential. At the heart of these challenges may be an understanding of Executive Function.

Complete details on the symposium, registration information, accommodations, schedule at a glance and more are available online here.
