On Campus – Advanced Skills in Auditory-Verbal Practice

Advanced Skills in Auditory-Verbal Practice is a popular course on our eLearning platform, but for some people, nothing beats the learning opportunities of face-to-face instruction.

On the basis of several enquiries, Hear and Say is offering the Advanced Auditory-Verbal Practice course On-Campus in 2017 at a cost of $A2,500 per student (incl GST).

Register your interest in attending our next 5-day on-campus course.

It is important to note that this course is suited to allied health and education professionals who have pre-existing qualifications for working with children who have a hearing loss. Completion of the Hear and Say Foundations of the Auditory-Approach course, available via eLearning, or evidence of the candidate’s prior knowledge of similar skills and experience, is a prerequisite to the Advanced course .

Feedback from prior courses…
“Excellent Course. It was good having a variety of presenters and a mixture of lectures and hands-on. Enjoyed the activities where we made up activities from a child’s lesson plan and acted out, and feedback from this. Enjoyed the videos as they gave a chance to see a variety of AVT Certs working with children.” – Joanne

“Great course. I have learned a number of practical skills to transfer to my own caseload. Thank you for all your hard work!” (name not given)

“I personally learned a lot more with five days face to face vs. eLearning” – Bonnie

We always love to hear from you!

Maia’s Story

At 9.10pm on 24 October 2013 our beautiful daughter Maia was born. 

The moment of elation was short-lived as we immediately noticed her left ear was missing. I frantically looked to the medical team around me for answers but received none.

Panic set in as we waited 4 days in hospital for an ENT to explain her condition, by which point we already had all the answers from Simone, who runs the Microtia and Atresia Program at Hear and Say.
