JFK-HCP Webinar: Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing with Autism Spectrum Disorder
April 19, 2017
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
We invite you to join us for an Autism Awareness Month educational event. Children with co-occurring Deafness or Hard of Hearing (DHH) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have a delayed diagnosis, therefore also have delayed intervention. Many professionals are unable to separate behaviors associated with deafness and hearing loss from those associated with autism. This webinar is for care coordinators, health department personnel, school personnel, and other professionals working with children. Anyone is welcome to attend this free webinar at the live site or online.  

• Christie Yoshinaga-Itano, PhD, Research Professor, Institute for Cognitive Science, University of Colorado Boulder
• Deborah Mood, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Developmental Pediatrics, Children’s Hospital Colorado

Following this event, the audience will better understand:
• “Red flags” which may indicate the presence of ASD symptoms, distinct from symptoms related to the child’s hearing loss
• Unique considerations for referral, screening, assessment, and intervention for dually diagnosed children
• Local, state-wide, and national resources

1:00-1:05 – Welcome and Introductions
1:05-2:00 – Description of the unique presentation of ASD among children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
2:00-2:45 – Considerations for referral, screening, diagnostic assessment and intervention
2:45-3:00 – Wrap-up and Q&A

You may join the live presentation at the Anschutz Medical Campus, or you can connect via the web. Either way, be sure to register!
