According to Phonak, many of the speakers are among “the world’s most distinguished pediatric audiology experts as well as experts in related fields, new researchers, and clinicians.” This conference aims to stimulate thoughtful interactions among attendees and speakers on a wide variety of topics related to childhood hearing loss. Topics include:

  • Minimizing listening challenges in children with hearing loss,
  • Working with children who have unusual hearing loss configurations,
  • Contemporary newborn hearing screening approaches, and
  • Pediatric eHealth — all within the context of family-centered service provision for children with hearing loss.
