Summary:

This module explains how parents and an early interventionist gradually learned of a young child’s multiple neurological disabilities: auditory neuropathy, visual impairment, and seizure disorder/epilepsy. The audiologist started early-intervention services when only one condition, hearing loss, had been diagnosed. Services begun in infancy included personal-adjustment counseling to help the child’s parents accept their unanticipated role of raising a child with hearing loss. Professional services ultimately expanded to address multiple significant needs. The module explores feelings of both the parents and the audiologist/early interventionist as the extent of the child’s needs became apparent. Family members worked through early disabling grief and learned to thrive although the child continued to function at a low cognitive and linguistic level.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is for professionals to realize families’ needs for personal-adjustment counseling and informational counseling about disorders that affect children’s speech and language development and to recognize atypical ways that children with severe disabilities may communicate. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • State ways that families’ day-to-day lives are affected when a disabling condition is diagnosed in a child
  • Describe differences between informational counseling and personal-adjustment counseling
  • Articulate steps to facilitate family functioning as part of speech-language services directed to a child
  • Describe intentional behaviors, prelinguistic communicative intents, and linguistic communication in a child with multiple significant needs

I have experienced very similar situations with very involved children. This helped me with possible strategies to use. Also this supported my frustrations and self doubt about my ability to help these children and their families.

The "story" focused on the family and the child but didn't explain the background of personal adjustment counseling as deeply as it should for the type of questions in the assessment.
