Using the Recorded Functional Listening Evaluation Using Sentences

Program description/purpose:

Children with hearing loss are increasingly made ineligible for specialized instruction. The Americans with Disabilities Act, as clarified by the Departments of Education and Justice, specified that schools must ensure that communication is as effective as class peers. The Recorded FLE Using Sentences assists in ‘making the case’ that hearing loss interferes with school access and therefore the comprehensiveness and pace of learning.

Three course objectives (The participants will be able to):

  1. Use the Recorded FLE to estimate functional listening ability in the classroom
  2. Set up to perform the Recorded FLE Using Sentences, including student instruction
  3. Interpret the FLE results in a way that assists teachers, parents and other staff in understanding how the hearing loss impacts communication effectiveness in the classroom

CEUs: 1.25 Certificate of Participation from SSCHL LSLS Certificate also available.
