If there is anything educators have learned over the past year it is knowing that there is so much more to attending a conference than just the content. ESU 16 hosts a watch party for the Nebraska Autism State Conference so area teachers, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists can have the time to network, collaborate, and share strategies with each other. It has been so beneficial to be TOGETHER to learn.

Most children with hearing aids are able to hear the teacher talking or a class peer answering a question but they do not understand all that is said. For example, for words like cap, cast, calf, cap the child may clearly hear ‘ca’ but the ending will be missing. A teacher cannot raise his or her voice enough to compensate for this type of fragmented hearing. Here is an example of what is being said vs what a hearing impaired child might actually hear.
