The Impact of Hearing Loss on Childhood Development and Family Constellation

As families seek resources for their children who are deaf or hard of hearing, it can be difficult to understand the recent research and evidence base. Families turn to professionals for knowledge that is factual, timely, and current. This forum will address several factors that are impacted by family involvement and related recent evidence, allowing professionals to make more specific recommendations to families to reach a desired outcome for listening and spoken language.

Our understanding of factors that impact development and overall outcomes in children with hearing loss is ever-changing. New discoveries are leading to a deeper understanding of the complex and interrelated family behaviors that result in the comprehension, production, and use of language. The 2019 Research Forum will offer scientists a platform to share their findings in this area and their theories about how this research could predict speech, language, and hearing outcomes using specific interventions to address hearing loss.
