AG Bell is pleased to host its Global Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) Symposium virtually June 24-25, 2021. Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is preventing in-person gatherings, this year’s educational program will be offered live online and on demand, and includes NIH-funded keynote speakers, concurrent and technology sessions, and social happy hours.
The official languages of the Global LSL Symposium venue are English and Spanish. Sessions will include both oral and captions of both English and Spanish. Additional languages may be available via captioning upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 10.
AG Bell provides captioning to provide communication access for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. Real-time captioning will be provided during the live symposium educational sessions. Sessions will include both oral and captions of both English and Spanish. Additional languages may be available via captioning upon request to email@example.com.
The virtual symposium will offer both live and on demand versions. Attendees will also have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits (CEUs) from the AG Bell Academy, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), and the American Academy of Audiology (AAA).
The Virtual Symposium program includes:
- Five keynote presentations
- 29 concurrent sessions
- Four hearing innovation forums
- Two poster + 5-minute podium presentations.
Similar to previous years, three simultaneous concurrent sessions will be offered in each 1- to 1.5-hour time slot throughout the two days of programming.
The Global LSL Virtual Symposium will offer opportunities for sponsor participation in the live, online conference.
