The Functional Listening Index-Paediatric® (FLI-P®) – Advanced user and case studies

Live interactive and online , Australia

This session aims to identify how communication outcomes for children with hearing loss can be improved by monitoring a child’s ‘listening trajectory’. Using this information to bridge gaps between audiological assessments, language outcome measures, and auditory listening checklists. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how functional listening progress can be a much earlier predictor of language outcomes and used to flag and guide progress.
