Paediatric Audiology Masterclass

Forthcoming Course: Paediatric Audiology Masterclass 28th April to 30th April 2016 at Greenwich University, London, UK

The biggest course in paediatric audiology is here.

The main aim of the course is to improve the quality of paediatric hearing aid fittings by paying appropriate attention to various clinical procedures before and after the fitting. Furthermore, the best audiological care is the one that involves the whole family around the child in the habilitation process. A section of the course will be devoted to this aspect of audiology service.

Amongst the distinguished speakers delivering the talks are Dr Susan Scollie who is flying in from Canada to deliver a day on hearing aid verification and validation, Dr Harvey Dillon live from NAL, Australia to speak about auditory processing disorders, Dr Josephine Marriage speaking on the behavioural testing including play and visual reinforcement audiometry and Gwen Carr speaking about family centred care for paediatric audiology service users.

This three day course is mainly aimed at paediatric audiologists but other professionals working with childhood hearing loss are welcome to join. The course has both theoretical and practical aspects to deliver the most effective learning experience that can be translated into the day-today clinics easily.

  • Physiological and behavioural hearing assessment of children
