Parent Choice Symposium

Join us for the Parent Choice Symposium at CI2019

Wednesday, July 10, 6-7 PM
Atlantic 2-3

At this one-hour interactive session we will take a deep dive into the topic of parent choice on technology and communication options for children with hearing loss. The session will examine how parent choice is supported by Federal legislation though may be misinterpreted in the delivery of family support by national and state governmental agencies, schools, and individual service providers. We will learn from the shared experiences and insights of clinicians who are advocating to preserve parent choice in their own states. 

Organized and Offered by American Cochlear Implant Alliance Advocacy Staff and Volunteers
