Evaluating training courses for parents of children with cochlear implants

Paganga, S., Tucker, E., Harrigan, S. and Lutman, M. (2001) Evaluating training courses for parents of children with cochlear implants International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 36, (Supplement 2001), pp. 517-522.

Record type: Article


The purpose of this study was to investigate the change in effective communication between parents and children with cochlear implants when the parents attended a modified Hanen training course (Watson 1995). The study demonstrates that the course led to improvement in the effectiveness of the parent-child interaction, as rated by naive independent observers. The Erber rating scale (Erber et al. 1995) was implemented as a tool for evaluating changes before and after the courses. Using video samples taken at the above intervals, the ratings showed a significant increase in effective communication at the end of the courses.
