I’ve watched the following video a couple of times and I want to share it with you. However, I’m withholding my comments for the moment. I would really like to encourage you to watch it and leave your comments below. After a few comments, I will engage with you.
Before you watch the video, here’s a bit of what it’s about (taken from the YouTube description)…
Published on Dec 5, 2012
Over the past decade, tremendous progress has been made in ensuring that families have access to hearing screening when a baby is born. Approximately 95% of babies now receive a hearing screen shortly after birth. Now, greater emphasis must be placed on training early childhood education and health care providers.
Dr. Karl R. White is a Professor of Psychology at Utah State University and the founding Director of the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM). Dr. White is recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on early identification and treatment of hearing loss in infants and young children.
The video is about 18 minutes long — and I’m sure this will be controversial among the readers here. That’s fine with me. Enable CC on the video if you like. In addition, I’ve provided screen grabs of a few of the slides that Dr. White uses.
Please share your thoughts below but I have a few ground rules: 1) Treat Dr. White with respect and extend the benefit of the doubt, and 2) do the same with other commenters. In other words: keep it civil, mature, and fair.
