    Hello Fellow ASHA Leadership Community Members:

    I hope this email finds you and your families well. As we close out May is Better Speech and Hearing Month (BSHM), I want to share information with you about a new FREE Massive Open Online Course on Hearing Loss in Children.

    This course was created in collaboration with Michigan Medicine providers from the Departments of Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, Family Medicine and Academic Innovations. Originally the course was designed with pediatricians, medical residents and AuD students as the primary audience. However, the content is applicable really to ANYONE who wants to learn more about hearing loss in children. There is video footage of ear procedures both in the clinic and the operating room, CI programming, speech therapy sessions, interviews with children and physicians with hearing loss and much more. If not obtaining CMEs, individuals can pick and choose what they want to watch in the course as it applies to their work and/or interests. There are five modules within the course:

    Module 1: Anatomy of the Ear

    Module 2: Hearing Loss Diagnosis

    Module 3: Impact on Speech and Language

    Module 4: State of the Art Interventions for Hearing Loss (including Educational Issues)

    Module 5: Pediatric Vestibular System & Balance

    Any assistance you can provide in promoting this course to your networks would be much appreciated - online.umich.edu/courses/hearing-loss-in-children. See the attached flier and additional information below regarding this course.  Thank you for your consideration. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any further questions/concerns. Have a great weekend!

    Warmest regards,

    Thanks, Anita, for posting this. Sharing this broadly is certainly what we are hoping will happen. I hope members of this group will feel free to share the information with colleagues, including students and people outside our discipline. The segments within each of the weeks are no longer than 10-15 minutes so people are able to learn some things in little bites. I am very proud to have been a part of this extraordinary team to create, what I think,  is an important MOOC. Enjoy!
    Best, Jaynee
