Event Details

SEN and Disabilities Seminar Series 2017/18 

Supporting children with Hearing Impairment in the mainstream classroom

Presented by Lyndsey Allen, The Ear Foundation

45,000 children with permanent hearing loss live in the UK, 90% of which are born to hearing parents.

80% of children will be affected by glue ear (otitis media) before they reach the age of 10. (NDCS)

Experience a hearing loss and consider the impact on language, learning and social skills. We’ll describe how young people with hearing loss can reach their potential through appropriate hearing technologies and an inclusive school environment.  Through case studies we’ll explore key challenges in the early years, primary and at secondary along with some practical strategies to support them.   

Lyndsey Allen graduated in 2001 with a BSc honours degree in Speech and Language Therapy.  From 2005 until 2011, she worked as a Specialist SLT with the children’s cochlear implant programme in Birmingham where she followed the three year certification process to become an Auditory Verbal Therapist.  She is project lead for both education and family programmes at The Ear Foundation, designing and delivering courses which she presents nationally and internationally on a range of topics.  Her special interests are theory of mind development and the use of daily routines to develop spoken language through listening, topics on which she has published.
