Satellite events
Pre Conference event - 7th June 2010.
Sharing the News: Supporting and Empowering Families through Effective 
Communication. A satellite event held by the England NHS Newborn Hearing 
Screening Programme at the Regina Olga Hotel (Cernobbio).

Are you involved in sharing the news of deafness or hearing impairment with 
families? This exciting and highly successful course involves working with 
trained and experienced professional actors to identify and reinforce best 
practice in communicating with parents at the time of diagnosis.

Oticon Paediatric Symposium
Oticon is happy to host yet another Paediatric Symposium - this time held 
in corporation with Interacoustics. The Symposium will take place on 
Wednesday, June 9th from 10.30 - 13.45 PM, including lunch. The paediatric 
hearing aid fitting has become a more complicated process involving many 
different instruments and multiple measurements on which the fitting and 
validation is based. The Symposium will take a holistic approach from 
diagnosis to fitting and verification within paediatrics.

Widex Special event
Mild hearing loss in childhood  consequences and intervention strategies
This Widex special event will be hosted by Anne Marie Tharpe, PhD, from 
Vanderbilt University and Marlene Bagatto, Au.D, from University of Western 
Ontario. We will be focusing on the educational and psychosocial 
consequences of permanent mild bilateral hearing loss in children. 
Strategies and guidelines for assessment, intervention and amplification 
will be discussed.
