About this learning opportunity

Mary Pat Moeller will be speaking about her on-going research on the auditory and educational impact of mild and mild to moderate hearing loss. She will be sharing information about the needs for devices (hearing aids, FM) as well as educational supports required in schools. Some of this  information has been shared at recent international conferences and some is still in the development as Dr. Moeller’s research in this area continues.

This learning opportunity is being provided through a grant from Alberta Education.
