Seventh International Adult Aural Rehabilitation Conference

St. Pete Beach, FL
May 20-22, 2013

The Hearing Rehabilitation Foundation (HRF) and the University of South Florida (USF) will host the Seventh International Adult Aural Rehabilitation Conference at the Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center, St. Pete Beach, Florida, from May 20 -22, 2013.   This conference represents a unique opportunity for clinicians and researchers involved in Aural Rehabilitation to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues from around the world, and to discuss areas of mutual interest and possible collaboration.

The theme of the meeting is, “Maximizing the benefits of technology through innovative intervention,” a topic of interest for many researchers and clinicians.  Our faculty of invited speakers will address this important concept.  It will also be covered in a special half-day presentation by representatives of the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology.  There will be a large number of contributed papers presented by US and international researchers and practitioners.

This conference will be restricted to a maximum of 100 participants, and we urge anyone interested in attending 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.
