The Eighth International Adult Aural Rehabilitation Conference

Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center
St. Pete Beach, FL
June 1-3, 2015

The Hearing Rehabilitation Foundation will host the Eighth International Adult Aural Rehabilitation Conference at the Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center, St. Pete Beach, FL from June 1 – 3, 2015. This conference provides a unique opportunity for clinicians and researchers involved in AR to meet and exchange idea with colleagues from around the world, and to discuss areas of mutual interest and possible collaboration.

The theme of this conference is, “Optimizing the listening skills of adults with hearing aids or cochlear implants.” The conference will have a faculty of invited speakers, plus a large number of contributed papers from clinicians and researchers. Following its success at the past three meetings, there will also be a Poster Session.

The conference will be restricted to a maximum of 100 participants, and anyone interested in attending this exciting conference is urged to register early to ensure their place.



Free Resources

Geoff Plant from the Hearing Rehabilitation Foundation also develops (re)habilitation resources for MED-EL Worldwide Headquarters in Innsbruck, Austria. These include a number of free downloads that are available at the MED-EL website.

The HRF now has three new rhythm, rhyme, and song resources for use with children. Although originally designed for use with children with profound hearing loss, they have proved to be very popular with all children regardless of their hearing status.  All three provide practice in producing rhythmic, fluent speech, and can also be adapted for speech perception training. All this AND they are fun too!

Geoff also writes the “Listen, Hear!” a quarterly newsletter devoted to (re)habilitation topics. Click here to see the range of titles available.
