Online Course Detail


The ultimate goal for a child with a cochlear implant will be to participate in natural conversation with a range of speakers in a variety of settings. In order to achieve that goal, early focus on the path from structured activities to free conversation is crucial. Moving therapy activities away from the table is a first step in the generalization process. This presentation gives specific ideas for doing so along with ways to assist families and regular education teachers to recognize opportunities for carryover in the home and school environments.
