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.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!  It is Time for the Fall Back 5K!

Welcome to the race that gives you what no other race can…an extra hour of sleep! Sure, you get a runner’s bib, and you get a t-shirt. But it’s that extra hour of sleep, courtesy of Daylight Savings Time, that really sets us apart. So let this running tribute to Daylight Savings Time begin!

A virtual 5K means that you choose to do your 5K by your rules. You can run, walk, hike, crawl, dance, stroll, or any combination thereof—whatever it takes to cover a distance of 3.1 (5K) miles. You can choose your day, your time, your venue. You can run it all at once or in chunks. Just be sure to record your total time and distance, and add them up to report a single, total running time. You can choose to participate outdoors or even indoors on your treadmill. You can run in Nashville or anywhere in the world. Run it on your own, or gather a group and run it for real. You are your own boss for this race!

For the entry fee, all participants will receive a virtual runner’s bib that you can print and wear while running (or just paste in your scrapbook), a stylish t-shirt that pairs well with runner’s gear or jeans, that amazing, extra hour of sleep, and the knowledge that you just did something great for yourself and to support the Deaf and hard of hearing communities!

DESCRIPTION:
For many families the early hearing detection and intervention process impacts not only the primary caregivers but also the extended family, in particular, grandparents. For some families, grandparents and others, are able to provide much valued support in a variety of ways including practical, financial and emotional. Intergenerational support can enhance family well-being which in turn creates a more positive environment for child development. For other families, grandparents may need information and time to understand the needs of the child who is deaf and the caregivers. Grandparents and extended families may be actively engaged in services including audiologic assessment and early intervention sessions. There are also a growing number of grandparents who are serving as the primary caregivers for children. This presentation will provide an overview of research on the role of the extended family in early intervention. The session will include recommendations of ways to positively engage extended family members in the early detection and intervention process for primary caregivers and for professionals.

Obstacles to maximizing intergenerational support will be considered. Case studies will be reviewed and participants will share effective programming and strategies to enhance extended family engagement from their experiences in early intervention. Resources for caregivers and professionals will be explored.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe the research on extended family engagement in early intervention.
  • Describe at least 5 ways that grandparents can support the development of children who are deaf/hard of hearing.
  • Identify at least 5 strategies that early intervention providers can use to enhance extended family engagement.

PRESENTER:
Susan Lenihan is a professor in the deaf education program at Fontbonne University in St. Louis, MO. The program prepares teachers, speech-language pathologists and early interventionists for careers in deaf education. Her professional interests include early intervention, cochlear implants, the role of the family in communication development, the impact of trauma on child development and literacy.
