|Title||DHH: Auditory-Verbal Practicum|
This is an advanced course in auditory-verbal therapy, building on the theory and practice from the prerequisite course, EDSP 557 Auditory-Verbal Principles. The goal of this course is to allow students to practice an auditory-verbal diagnostic teaching model. Students administer assessments in phonetic and phonologic speech, receptive and expressive language, and auditory skills to children with hearing loss. From the assessments, students choose targets in each area, write lesson plans, choose appropriate materials oand integrate goals in each area into a content-based theme, using literature as a core. Parent skills are also assessed to plan for parent participation, guidance and education in the lab, using adult learning theory principles and parent coaching models learned in previous courses.
