Pragmatics in Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

October 13, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Emerson College is pleased to announce the 2022 Speech and Hearing Foundation of MA lecture by Dr. Amy Szarkowski, Director of The Institute at the Children’s Center for Communication/Beverly School for the Deaf (CCCBSD).
Pragmatics in Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Thursday, October 13, 2022
The importance of the development of language and communication abilities among children who are deaf or hard of hearing is widely recognized. Yet, pragmatics – sometimes referred to as “social communication” – is not as often considered. 
This presentation will highlight why pragmatic development should be of interest to professionals and caregivers alike. From infancy through adulthood, pragmatics can influence how individuals interact with and understand others and their world. Drawing on clinical experience and scholarly work in this area, Dr. Szarkowski will share insights about areas of pragmatic vulnerabilities as well as strengths among children who are deaf or hard of hearing and will offer evidence-informed suggestions for bolstering pragmatic abilities.
