Online Short Courses from CID for Individuals Working with Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
VSDB Outreach Services purchased access to four online, self-paced short courses (30 – 60 minutes each), and is making them available free of charge to professionals in Virginia who want to learn more about working with children who are deaf or hard of hearing.* These courses were developed at the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID). Those who register before the given deadline for each will be sent a code that will allow access at no charge for approximately one month (dates are specified) to take that course at their convenience, 24/7. At the end of that course, each participant must complete an assessment, a course evaluation, and a questionnaire, and will then be able to request .05 ASHA CEUs or .5 LSLS CEUs and/or a certificate of completion. People may take as many or few courses as they choose.

Pediatric Audiology: The Basics
Understanding the communication needs of a student with hearing loss starts with a basic knowledge of what he can and cannot hear. This 38 minute course is a stand-alone audiology primer, essential for early intervention providers, teachers, pediatric speech-language pathologists and others who work on the educational team of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. This short course covers how the ear works, how to read an audiogram, the kinds of testing used to measure hearing levels of children of different ages, hearing devices, and more.
Target Audience: Early intervention providers, educators (especially teachers, speech-language pathologists, instructional assistants) who work with children who are deaf or hard of hearing, and family members.
At the end of registration period, you will receive a voucher (coupon) code from VSDB Outreach, and can then take the course at your convenience from any location, within the time period allotted.
