Presented by Kristina M. English


Teens are interested in taking an active role in their health care, and the expectations they have for their healthcare providers are very similar to those of adult patients. Professionals specializing in a range of health challenges (e.g., diabetes, cardiac abnormalities) routinely provide transition planning to help teens gradually assume responsibility for their health; however, similar transition planning for teens with hearing loss and other communicative disorders has not yet been developed. This session will describe a set of skills involved in health care transitioning, including health literacy, and share a proposed transition plan designed for educational audiologists.

Learner Outcomes:  At the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to define health literacy, describe a tool used to screen teens’ health literacy skills and describe three stages developed to support a transition plan into adult health care.

Webinar Registration Rates: EAA Members $30, Non-Members $45

This course is offered for .15 ASHA CEUs (intermediate level, professional area)
