Presenters: Jason P. Wigand, AuD, CCC-A and Michelle L.W. Dawson
In this episode Michelle is joined by the jovial Jason Wigand, AuD, Assistant Professor and Clinical Director of the Cochlear Implant Program at the University of South Carolina.  They have quite the talk for you!  Have you scratched your head lately wondering why that patient your working with just isn’t picking up the sounds or words y’all have spent weeks addressing?  But…have you seriously considered the impact of their surrounding environment on speech acquisition? How about little sister’s i-pad blaring, older brother gaming in the next room with the surround sound turned all the way up, the wash running in the machine adjacent to where you’ve been working?  Those sounds impact our sessions because they limit what our little ones can hear…and Jason is “hear” today to offer functional …and fun…resources!
