Red Flags: Considerations in Assessment of Autism with students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

Identification of hearing loss and cochlear implantation are occurring before any concerns about ASD arise, necessitating the need for audiologists and early interventionists to become knowledgeable about the behavioral symptomatology associated with this dual diagnosis. Learn about atypical development in children with hearing impairments who are suspected of having ASD.

 

Featuring Dr. Christine Yoshinaga-Itano, audiologist

  • Understand the rates of ASD in Deaf/HH compared to the general population (LO 1)

  • Discuss how assessments may need to be adapted when there is a question of possible ASD in D/HH children (LO 4)
