Course Description
Experience in mentoring and training professionals across the United Kingdom has demonstrated that in putting emphasis on and teaching professionals to work through audition, there seems to be a trend that play and fun sometimes go amiss. This course will share Auditory-Verbal UK's (AVUK) methods to equip listening and spoken language professionals and parents of children with hearing loss in using purposeful play as the vehicle for learning, while staying focused on goals for listening and spoken language development. Purposeful play will be defined and research to support it's introduction in therapy sessions will be presented. Common challenges that children experience during play will be discussed. The presenters will then explain how purposeful play can be included in sessions whilst keeping learning goals firmly in the forefront, ensuring everyone has fun in the process. By the end of this course, participants will have learned some practical strategies that will help ensure that all listening and language learning opportunities that occur in both clinical and home settings are presented in a playful and meaningful manner.

Learner Outcomes

  1. Describe why some children with hearing loss may have difficulty learning language and skills of play. 
  2. Identify four reasons why children may get “stuck” in play. 
  3. Explain how professionals and parents can “drive play” and “push in” with language learning opportunities.
