Phonak has announced the next in its series of pediatric conferences, scheduled to take place in England November 24-25, 2008, with a goal of examining the challenges and solutions around improving outcomes for children with hearing loss.

Building on Phonak’s previous two events Professor John Bamford, the conference chair, and the Phonak Advisory Board have put together the following program that will feature a panel of 16 industry experts who will present their latest research and clinical experiences during the two-day event. In four sessions, attendees will learn more about:

•    Working towards optimal amplification for children
•    Plasticity and high frequency amplification: issues and developments
•    Auditory Processing Disorders and Auditory Neuropathy/Dys-synchrony
•    Beyond the clinic: optimizing amplification benefits and language outcomes

These sessions include the latest in auditory development, hearing care for infants, new hearing instrument features and technologies, management strategies for special populations as well as communication development and family perspectives.
