4 Notes pertaining to professional program with CRRCDC China Rehabilitation and Research Center for Deaf Children October 23, 2012: Attendance: Mr. Hu Xiangyang Mrs. Li Hongtao Mrs. Wang Duanxia Mr. Li Ju Mrs. Qu Chunyan Mr. Kuang Shaohua And Bruce --guide and interpreter Introductions by Mr. Sun Xibin Audiologist and Vice President of staff. Introductions of U.S. team. Propaganda Film on the cause of China Hearing and Speech Rehabilitation -has the largest population of hearing impaired -founded in 1983, supported by audiology clinic, speech training and education department -group teaching, individual tutoring and parent-children sessions - helped over 60,000 people -completed over 50 research projects -published various publications - 3/3 national ear care day Director Hu welcomes us. This is the 3rd time seeing p2p delegates. He then provides more information concerning his facility: -offer service to children, and help other groups across their nation -helped with planning and conduct research -helped poor families and over 5,000 kids fitting ears and service. -largest program for deaf children supported by govt. -helped with training 1000 centers and rehab centers, -special day on March 3rd is organized by them including 10 other ministries, -help with Audio Prevention of WHO, and -CRRCDC is a teaching partner for 3 universities in china, -He stated in 1980s not many people in were trained in specialized areas, -there is increased investment from govt., but they want to do better than basic services -the belief is to work hard and to learn from developed countries -In recent two years, they have trained students, and have participated in exchange programs and in conferences, -Sent representative to ASHA and so forth -looking forward to forming a bridge with us counterparts, -they have a new center sq. meters to be completed by next year or so -looking for more cochlear implants to be done Dr. Robinson gives update about developments on speech and language in US -improvements are because of scientific based work -early identification of infants to eventually lead to living typical lives -In regards to hearing aids/cochlear implants, the role of SLP serves as conduit between parent and classroom, preferential seating, room amps, consultation -Handout to be given regarding additional learning needs Heather Taylor gives presentation on hearing-impaired population in early intervention. Starts with DVD - Parent response to current child's hearing status

5 - negative and strong terms are used and implies finality of condition -parents should know that there are many options to help child with communication, use words like opportunities, identify, early involvement, journey, instead of options, diagnosed, early interventions and counseling - deaf role models in hospitals are the missing link there is a gap between identification and obtaining the cochlear implants. One solution is teaching sign language according to research it helps, and should be done before speech training. It appears that the child develops language better, earlier, and faster, and has good literacy skills Questions and Answers and Comments Do you currently have the CSL component in your program???-- They respect different philosophies, but may not add CSL right now. Need more research, it has no obvious benefits. They would rather identify with autoacoustic emissions. But there are specialized schools for sign language. Dr. Robinson speaks about the River school. 50% typical and deaf children in attendance Dr. Hu speaks of problem with parents focusing on therapy more than education of child. Ruth Samuelson asks Is it mandated that all children be screened for infants for hearing??? --Dr. Sun says there is an issue from health ministry that says all hospitals with Ob/Gyn dept. needs to be screened. Every city has screening centers. Once born, infant is screened in hospital, if failed they come to CrrCdc. --Ruth says biggest problem is follow up in her state. --Dr. Sun says they have similar situation, and have informational tunnel. There is a screening for deaf gene. --Dr. Hu says there are large amounts of immigrants but limited resources and knowledge of these services that are offered. The goal is to improve 60-70% in rural areas, which is most of their country. They have received their most advanced information from USA, but trying to solve this problem with their rural areas is quite a challenge. Mary Kay Chandler asks What are outcomes when children are in adolescent or teenage years? --Mrs. Qu says they track students and only 2 went to deaf school from Beijing --Dr. Hu says maybe 50% of deaf children went to deaf school and others to regular Ed. Sometimes diagnosis is too late in rural areas. The severely impaired cannot get cochlear implants (CI). --Dr Robinson says that there are parameters for CI and one of the things is parental support. If none, then no CI. Mrs. Qu asks Between 6 months and 3yrs what is done? Dr. R says we put them in therapy, give parents education on hearing aid, teach parents how to read and play with their child, help in making adls language enriched. -- Mary Kay talks about John Tracy Clinic strictly oral school with good results. Dr. Hu says trying to integrate oral rehab skills. John Tracy helps to train, so does Marilyn school and AGbell.org. --PROMPTS training suggested by Heather tactile kinesthetic, not only based on imitation --Dr Robinson states that phonological awareness works well with children who are deaf, enhancing speech and literacy skills.

6 Dr. Li asks What are your phonetic disorders? Dr. Robinson explained that standard artic test, detailed in exam, phono awareness, language test, language sampling as well. Dr. Hu wants more info on assessments tools. We say we would help with that. Sister school is site we visited yesterday and CRRCDC would like to stay in touch Exchange of gifts and cards Tour of Program Notes pertaining to professional program with Beijing Stars and Rain Education Institute for Autism on October 23, 2012 Participants: Ms. Wang Peipei, Development Officer of Stars and Rain Ms. Ba Hongli, Head Teacher at Stars and Rain Dr. Tommie L. Robinson, ASHA Delegation Leader Ms. Heather Taylor, SLP Delegate and Presenter Other SLP Delegation members: Ms. Rose Philippe, Ms. Ruth A. Samuelsen, Mrs. Mary Kay Chandler Mr. Bruce Meng Liangliang, People to People National Representative and Interpreter Ms. Hua Jing, National Coordinator The delegation was welcomed by Ms. Peipei who outlined the program. Beijing Stars and Rain was founded in 1993 by the mother of a child with autism, Ms. Tian Huiping. It is China s first NGO formed to serve children with autism. The program focuses on training parents to teach their preschool children ages 3 to 6 years. To date between 6000 and 7000 parents have come to Stars and Rain for training that is based on Applied Behavior Analysis and TEACCH methodology. Four times a year an 11-week program is offered. Teachers demonstrate and parents learn to implement techniques with their children. A big challenge for the teachers is communicating to the parents the importance of attention to the communication development of their children. Ms. Peipei stated that the staff is trained in behavior, but not in speech-language and is very interested in ways to develop language in the children. In addition to the preschool program, Stars and Rain has a day program for teenagers that is based on the TEACCH model and is housed in a separate facility close by. Questions and Answers: Q. What does the preschool program look like? A. Parent(s) and child attend classes together so that parents can learn to implement a program when they return home. There are six classes per day for each child; parents and children have a total of five hours per day in classes. Ratio of one teacher to ten families so the teacher is able to work with 2 to 3 children per day each week. Q. Does staff develop individual education plans?

7 A. Each autistic child is different. Upon intake, each child is assessed and the staff tries to group students with similar needs together. Every day requires a new individual education plan. Q. What are the classes children and parents attend each day? A. Music, Exercise, Social Skills, Motor, Conceptual/Cognitive, Speech-Language/ Vocabulary Recognition and Retell Q. How did the school become knowledgeable about A.B.A. and TEACCH? A. The founder of the school, Ms. Tian Huiping went to the U.S. to study and met Professor Ivar Lovas, the founder of A.B.A. Prof. Lovas visited the school in Additionally, the teachers are always learning. Their background is in early childhood education. Stars and Rain has a partnership with Heartspring School in Wichita, Kansas. Heartspring is a residential and day school whose mission is to partner with parents, professionals and the community to help children with special needs grow and learn on a path to a more independent life. Some Stars and Rain staff members are currently traveling to Wichita for training. Q. Do parents have ipads or other technology to use with their children? A. Many have ipads at home. Today in China, there is not much training in speech-language. Q. What do the parents already know about language development? A. Parents hope their children will learn to speak like typically developing children. The Stars and Rain training program is only eleven weeks per family, and it is difficult to know how to prioritize the language development needs for each child. Some parents have such high expectations for their child that they give up when the child doesn t become normal. Q. Do the children go to school when they leave Stars and Rain? A. There are still very few in the mainstream. Many go to special education schools. Q. Are the special education schools state supported? A. There are not many programs for students with autism. Most programs for students with autism are private. Following the Q. & A. the delegation toured the school and the adolescent program. After the tour delegation member Heather Taylor gave a presentation to the parents and teachers of the school. Her topic was the characteristics of the communication and language of children with autism including prioritizing the speech and language needs. She was warmly received. At the conclusion of the talk parents were especially interested in learning about the ipad applications that Heather uses with her clients. According to their brochure current challenges are: Poor professional resources. China lacks a certification system for teachers of autism. Weak financial support. Stars and Rain receives no government funding.

8 Limited awareness about autism with China. Universal education for all is not a part of the culture. Inability of Stars and Rain to meet demand. They maintain a long waiting list. Need to develop continuing services for older children.

This is an oral-based school where children are boarded four days a week. Parents are encouraged to visit at any time. When they are judged ready by the staff, children are usually put into a regular kindergarten program.

10 A discussion ensued about cochlear implants and their popularity and use in both China and the U.S. The staff were most interested in our processes for early identification of hearing loss and the rehabilitation process in the U.S. The PROMPT Program and Cued Speech were discussed, as well as newborn hearing screening programs in the U.S. As a follow-up, Ruth will send the school materials on speech reading lessons for young children; Mary Kay and Heather will send checklists of language development for infants and young children. A tour of the facility and interaction with many of the students followed. We concluded with a group photo and exchanges of cards.
