Abstract/Description:

This session will explore the evolution of using the coaching model as a process to deliver therapy via the internet to children with hearing loss during a time of uncertainty with social distancing and decrease of in-person services. It will apply the components of a coaching model and adult learning theory to Listening and Spoken Language therapy delivered virtually providing continuity of care when a provider can no longer meet in person due to social distancing and COVID-19 restrictions. A goal of the coaching model is to empower the parent through knowledge, development of skills and the confidence to use their skills to improve their child’s outcomes. Parental Self Efficacy (PSE) describes the belief that a parent holds regarding their ability to be a successful parent and their competencies within their parental roles. A parent’s self-efficacy and stress levels may impact their ability to maintain typical routines fostering language development. Therefore, it is important for an early interventionist to consider tools and strategies to help identify and address stressors that may be impactful. Ambrose (2020) states that early intervention professionals should ensure their intervention services use a coaching model that helps parents understand their potential to influence their child’s outcomes, builds PSE, and supports parents’ involvement in facilitating their child’s development. This session will explore case studies of family involvement in early intervention services before, during and after a global pandemic and strategies to address quality of life and PSE through a coaching model.

Learning Objectives:

· The participant will define the coaching process as it applies to virtual service delivery.

· The participant will define parental self-efficacy and discuss the impact on family participation in early intervention services.

· The participant will examine case studies related to intensity of service delivery, family involvement, and quality of life during a global pandemic.

On Thursday, June 10th, NCHAM will be hosting the webinar: “Supports and Resources for Implementing Pediatric Tele-Audiology” Presented by: Jeff Hoffman, Bill Campbell and Brandt Culpepper.

Abstract/Description:

The focus on telehealth has increased during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as health professionals seek to provide a wide variety of health services while maintaining social and physical distancing. While tele-audiology has been in existence for several decades, there is currently a renewed interest by audiologists to adopt telehealth strategies for audiologic assessments and services.

The National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) recently completed a tele-audiology project funded by HRSA/MCHB and AMCHP with the goal of assisting audiology facilities that interested in or that are able to begin conducting pediatric audiologic assessments and services remotely.

This workshop will present the historical background of tele-audiology, an overview of the NCHAM tele-audiology project, the survey results of pediatric audiology facilities use of tele-audiology, and strategies to support adoption and provision of tele-audiology. Resources developed for the project include the revised Tele-Audiology Guide, an Introductory Guide, a planning tool and flowchart, five Technical Support sessions, a Remote Hearing Aid Programming Simulation, and a Facebook group.

Learning Objectives:

– List the types of tele-audiology assessments and services

– Identify the factors to be considered to plan and implement tele-audiology

– Locate tele-audiology resources

DESCRIPTION:
Dr. Hauser is a deaf neuropsychologist who recognized that audism can have a negative impact on deaf individuals’ well-being. His research passion is to better understand how to describe and measure audism. He wants to share scholarly discussions on audism with the general public to bring awareness. He believes that if people recognize audism, it will reduce the frequency and intensity of oppression, microaggression, and discrimination deaf individuals experience. In this webinar, Dr. Hauser will share current theories and trends in research related to how stigma affects mental health and overall daily functioning. He will also discuss how audism can be measured and show his research on the prevalence of audism in hearing communities.

Dr. Peter C. Hauser

Dr. Hauser is the Assistant Dean of Research Mentorship at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Professor Hauser directs the NTID Research Center on Culture and Language (CCL) that studies deaf communities of practice, with the goal of enhancing sociocultural connectedness, with funding from National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

AUDISM WEBINAR SERIES
Gallaudet University's Center for Continuing and Online Education, in partnership with the Deaf Studies Digital Journal and with support from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, Research and Continuing and Online Education are proud to present an upcoming series of webinars on Audism in our communities. A group of world-class scholars have joined this series to discuss the impacts audism has upon Deaf people. It is important to note that the concept of audism has long been part of the Deaf community landscape, even before Dr. Tom L. Humpries coined the term in 1975. The collective discourses on the oppression experienced by Deaf people date back to the early nineteenth century, yet has not been analyzed in-depth even in today’s age.  To reaffirm society's commitment toward social equity, our educational webinars will allow a sustainable conversation on audism as a critical step toward a plural and inclusive society.

This is a series of seven live-webinars ranging from theoretical to practical that will be offered throughout the Spring 2021, and they will be delivered in American Sign Language. The format of these Zoom webinars will be 90 minutes long. They are divided into four parts: (1) Introductions: 5 minutes, (2) Main lecture: 50 minutes, (3) Q & A: 30 minutes (this will be moderated and translated into ASL from Q & A Panel in Zoom), and (4) Wrap up: 5 minutes.
