Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Early Identification and Intervention

Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Early Identification and Intervention

Despite ample available evidence that early identification and early intervention are of the utmost importance for achieving the best possible outcomes for the child, we see that in many countries there are still barriers in implementing neonatal screening and/or timely interventions after establishing hearing loss. During this webinar, our distinguished speakers addressed the current situation in Europe, looked at the possible barriers, but also addressed how we can improve the situation with regards to early identification and intervention. The seminar closed with an interactive Q&A session.
