Music for children and adolescents with hearing loss

21 February @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$120

This workshop focuses on the benefits of music for listening and learning for young children through to the adolescent years. It explores music and hearing loss, the role of music in supporting wellbeing and social interaction, and practical strategies to support student engagement and participation.

Facilitated by Dr Chi Yhun Lo, Postdoctoral Researcher at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation and an Adjunct Fellow at Macquarie University. Chi has consulted with Cochlear Limited on a number of music-based applications such as “Bring Back the Beat”.

Chi's research areas examine the intersection between music, hearing, deafness, and health. A champion for open access and open learning, Chi is a dedicated educator and communicator—a NSW Fresh Scientist, a 3-Minute Thesis Finalist, a guest speaker at the Sydney Science Festival, the co-creator of a workshop: “Breaking down the invisible barriers between the deaf and the hearing”, and the recipient of a Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning at Macquarie University.

Chi serves as the Committee Secretary for the Parents of Deaf Children—a not-for-profit organisation that advocates and provides support for families with deaf and hard-of-hearing children. Chi is also the founder of a Science Camp for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children which was a Finalist at the Engagement Australia 2021 Excellence Awards.
