Our conference series is named in honour of Warren Estabrooks,
For over forty years, Warren Estabrooks has been setting the standard and raising the bar in professional practice. Recognized as an expert and trailblazer in the areas of auditory-verbal practice, auditory rehabilitation, auditory learning and hearing loss in children and adults, Warren is a highly sought after global consultant and he is particularly instrumental in the training and development of professionals in related pediatric and adult disciplines.
In 2007, Warren Estabrooks presented the International Speakers’ Program (ISP) of WE Listen International Inc. for auditory-verbal therapists, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, otolaryngologists, researchers, teachers, communicative disorders assistants, administrators, medical staff, students, and parents. Offered semi-annually as one-day conferences in workshop format, the ISP presented cutting edge information from well-regarded speakers in the fields of Audiology and Listening and Spoken Language interventions.
WE Listen International Inc. held its final Speakers’ Program on October 24, 2014 and the Warren Estabrooks Speaker Series (WESS) of SoundIntuition was unveiled. SoundIntuition provides online continuing education opportunities in the field of communication disorders and was founded by Karen MacIver-Lux who is one of the many children Warren saw for weekly auditory-verbal therapy at North York General Hospital.
Warren continues to make a significant impact in the lives of children and adults with hearing loss and their families around the globe through his books, lectures, global training programs and consultations. SoundIntuition is honoured and privileged to introduce the WESS to the professional community and the individuals and families they serve.
At the WESS, we aim to inspire professionals and families as much as Warren has inspired us.
