Nowadays, deafness is discovered and treated very early in life. Parents of children with hearing impairment get a lot of information about the child’s condition and future rehabilitation from the medical point of view. This being said, the medical advances and the powerful hearing aids would never ‘cure’ the hearing impairment completely. Many parents and educators are not aware of this fact.

During the lecture dr. Pavlič will answer and advise all parents who want their child to acquire the language without delays and in a natural way. He will also explain how language acquisition proceeds in case of deafness (with or without a hearing aid). In fact, this acquisition should be understood (and advanced) as a bilingual language acquisition.

We warmly invite you to this lecture, especially since the everyday-life issues will be presented in a clear way and accessible to all who need information the most dearly.MATIC ILUSTRACIJE POPRAVLJENE
