The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is hosting the Talk for a Lifetime Summer Conference: Neurodevelopmental Research & Application in Arlington, Va., July 27-28.
The conference will explore how neurodevelopmental research relates to spoken language, auditory brain development and readiness to learn in infants as well as older children. The Talk for a Lifetime Summer Conference will present opportunities to understand how to apply the latest research to enhance a practice.
Event speakers will include Dr. Janet Werker, a world leader in developmental, cross-language and speech; Dr. Anu Sharma, a professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, who is researching cortical re-organization and development in children who are deaf and hard of hearing; and Dr. Maria Mody, a specialist in cognitive neuroimaging of reading and language.
Conference attendees can participate in learning labs designed to foster discussion and enhance best practices in listening and spoken language development. There will also be opportunities to earn American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and Auditory-Verbal CEUs.
