January 24th: Round table “Different approaches in therapy for children with CI”

This meeting was special! We are grateful to all the participants for the brilliant presentations and for the interesting discussion in the second part of the meeting: Sue Archbold, Yvonne Seebens, Eulalia Juan Pastor, Pedro Bras da Silva, Isabel Monteiro, Emilia Leongard, Marina Gureva.We discussed many aspects of therapy: the family should be in the center of therapy, not only the work with children is important but also the education of parents. The specialist is not an instructor but a person supporting parents and children. It is important to remember that not all children can reach the same level, we are not talking about competition what really matters is to monitor the progress of the individual child.

The meeting ended with a comment from Susan Broughton: “No end point – no one ever stops learning and if we have done our job well, these young people have tools and knowledge they can use to gain any support they need in adult hood but are also life long learners”
