A child’s development relies heavily on the ability to see and hear clearly. Yet these two primary sensory systems are frequently taken for granted when working with very young children. This session focuses on growth and development of vision and hearing. Early identification of problems and generalized intervention techniques will be presented. A case study of one particularly controversial treatment for hearing loss will be presented as a platform for informative discussion and even healthy debate.
