I am an audiologist in the Republic of Ireland. Every year the Deafhear.ie (formerly National Association for the Deaf) arranges a weekend for parents who have children recently diagnosed with permanent hearing loss.
They (Deafhear,ie) invite me to talk with these parents and I enjoy this meeting. I learn from all parents and improve my talk every year. Last year I took a simlutaion of hearing loss where we placed audiometric results and listened to what their children are likley to hear or what they are missing. Every one liked it.
Please send your suggestions and I will acknowledge every response in preparing my talk.
