After a stimulating first international conference last year it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2nd conference on family-centred early intervention for children who are deaf or hard of hearing in Bad Ischl, Austria, from June 11th to 13th 2014. The Scientific Programme Committee (Christine Yoshinaga-Itano, Gwen Carr and Daniel Holzinger) as well as the local Austrian organizing committee, has started to prepare an international event that once again aims to provide a platform for Early Intervention professionals, researchers and parents to exchange evidence-based best practice.

The conference topic "Forging Global Collaboration" will be reflected throughout the programme by multinational and multiprofessional presentations, workshops, panels and network meetings.

The call for papers has been opened. We are looking forward to your submissions of presentations and posters for the conference.

SE DeafBlind Webinar Series
Tuesdays and Thursdays
(ASL Interpreting, Captioning & Spanish Interpreting Provided)
Sponsored by the Southeast State DeafBlind Projects

TIME:  1:30PM CST; 2:30PM EST

The auditory functioning of students who are DeafBlind and have multiple disabilities can often be difficult for IEP teams to determine. These students sometimes demonstrate the ability or inability to use their hearing in certain environments that seem inconsistent with the results of audiometric testing. To help teams provide data on how students use their hearing in a variety of settings and for a variety of activities, the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) has developed the Informal Functional Hearing Evaluation (IFHE). This presentation provides a short description of the components of the IFHE and how this tool can be used for the collection of data that can be incorporated into IEP documentation.
