PRESENTER:  Emma Nelson

DESCRIPTION:
This presentation will highlight potential benefits of collaborations between the National Deaf-Blind Technical Assistance Network, EHDI programs, and Hands & Voices State Chapters to address critical needs in the areas of early identification of infants and toddlers who are deaf-blind, referral to state deaf-blind projects, and appropriate intervention for infants and toddlers with deaf-blindness. The focus of the presentation will identify common risk factors and etiologies associated with deaf-blindness and highlight the necessity for statewide systems level collaboration between Deaf-Blind Projects, EHDI Programs, Family Organizations such as Hands & Voices State Chapters, and Part C Early Intervention to identify hearing and vision losses and refer for appropriate services as early as possible. Additionally, the presentation will provide examples of emerging state based solutions and present the opportunity for active discussion around possible additional solutions and partnerships to adequately meet the unique needs of this population.

Abstract/description:
Because of delayed language skills and fewer opportunities for incidental learning, social skills don’t just happen for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Even mild or temporary hearing loss can delay the development of social skills. Ways of approaching socialization and social skills training will be discussed. Thoughts for achieving social inclusion in a variety of settings are offered, including community activities, school activities, peer groups, recreation opportunities, etc. The value of a mentor or role model who is deaf or hard of hearing is discussed. The presenter’s daughter is now in college. Personal accounts of socialization successes and struggles are included in this session.

Learning Objectives:
· Attendees will learn what socialization challenges are faced by children who are DHH
· Attendees will gain an understanding that socialization modeling starts at a very early age
· Professionals will leave with ideas to help parents work on socialization skills from the start.

Presenter: Andrea Marwah received her BA degree in Psychology from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. Since her daughter was diagnosed with hearing loss in 2002, she has taken a special interest in educating parents and professionals on matters concerning ADA, IDEA, and advocacy for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Andrea presents both nationally on matters pertaining to advocacy and IDEA; deafness/hearing loss when combined with other disabilities; the impact of deafness/hearing loss; and many topics surrounding parenting and working with children who are deaf and hard of hearing. She works for the Illinois School for the Deaf as an outreach trainer and consultant for families and professionals who work with children who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind. Andrea began her Presidency at Illinois Hands & Voices in 2010 and is a national trainer for the Hands & Voices.
