Join us for our first Winter Carolina Institute. The Winter Carolina Institute consists of online coursework and hands-on practice of Listening and Spoken Language therapy with Certified LSL coaches.

This year's Institute will provide instruction and training to audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and teachers of the deaf who wish to develop their skills in Listening and Spoken Language Therapy for children with hearing loss. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

• Planning and Implementing the Auditory-Verbal Session
• The Development of an Auditory Feedback Loop: Strategies for Speech Babble and Critical Elements
• Beyond Input: Strategies for the Elicitation of Specific Vocabulary and Language Targets
• Conduction a tele-practice session using LSL techniques and strategies

Training will occur through online reading & assignments, taped lectures, group discussions, videotape analysis, self-study and hands-on practicum experiences with children who are enrolled in Listening and Spoken Language Therapy and their families. On-line learning will take between one to three hours each week to complete. Completion is necessary prior to on-site coaching experience.
