Thanks to Connections for the free zoom webinar
Creating a music rich environment in homes for infants and young children with hearing loss.

Kristen Van Dyke (FHSR) & Sally Blandon (Merit School of Music) discussed how playful interactions at home with music and movement stimulate cognition and foster sound production, a precursor for language development for newborn children with hearing loss, discussing the benefits of incorporating music in a Deaf/ Hard of Hearing child’s life along with best practices for creating a music-rich home environment.

Through sharing a variety of musical techniques and approaches, Sally and Kristen dug into the science-based pedagogy that further enhances the overall development and habilitation of young DHH children.
