 Abstract: For 100's of years, conversations about hearing loss have focused on the ear. Today, the conversation centers on the brain because we hear with the brain; the ear functions to channel sound to the brain. The purpose of this presentation is to provide information about the pivotal role of auditory brain development in the acquisition of spoken communication, reading, and academic skills in all children, and particularly those with any type and degree of hearing loss. The exciting news emphasized in this talk is that appropriate early and continuing auditory intervention that capitalizes on brain neuroplasticity and auditory technologies, allows for spoken language, literacy, and social outcomes never before imagined for today's infants and children with any type and degree of hearing loss.

 Objectives: 

  1. Describe auditory brain development as the foundation for listening, language and literacy for all infants and children
  2. Explain the role of amplification technologies in infant cognitive development
  3. detail 2020 strategies and technologies used by families and professionals that can enhance listening, language, literacy and cognitive capacity in infants and children
