The 2020 FEDHH Conference is going VIRTUAL! We are excited to continue to collaborate with professionals around Florida who are working with individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Join us in the evenings of November 16-20 as we learn from various professionals in our field, discuss new and innovating teaching methods, and honor shining stars through the state of Florida. Save the Dates!


Elizabeth Rosenzweig PhD CCC-SLP LSLS Cert. AVT is Assistant Professor and Chair of the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at Yeshiva University Stern College for Women.  In her private practice, she serves children with hearing loss and their families around the world, providing auditory verbal intervention via teletherapy.  Her research interests include trauma-informed care, personnel preparation, and auditory verbal outcomes.  You can find her at www.AuditoryVerbalTherapy.net


What is behind that "difficult" child or parent?  Why does the diagnosis of hearing loss paralyze some families and energize others?  Why do we see such varied outcomes in our field?  From NEAR to HEAR will delve into NEAR science and explore how Neurochemistry, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and Resilience affect children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families.  Participants will learn to connect research to practice with strategies that can be used to create a trauma-informed environment that will benefit all learners.

The Keynote Presentation is in the evening of Monday, November 16.
