2nd Trends in Pediatrics

Across four consecutive days, the 2nd Trends in Pediatrics virtual course will cover the latest advancements, evidence and perspective on a range of topics including new-born hearing screening, auditory neuropathy, spectrum disorder, behavioural testing and pediatric vestibular assessments.

This is a course organised and run by the Interacoustics Academy. Registration to this is free of charge. Each course has been assigned 0.2 CEU´s from the American Academy of Audiology. You can attend as many courses as you like but each course requires a separate registration so CEU points can be properly awarded.
