Using Listening Trajectories to Guide Outcomes

Early device fitting presents challenges for measuring and evaluating speech and language skills in infants and young children. This session explores the utility of using a child’s listening trajectory to inform and guide early decisions by parents and professionals to result in optimal listening speech and language outcomes.

During this session, participants will:

  • Use and track a child's listening trajectory to predict their language outcome.
  • Compare the listening skills of a child with hearing loss to those of typical hearing children using normative data.
  • Identify how a child's longitudinal view of their functional listening skills can guide access to sound and intervention decisions by families at the earliest opportunity.
