Dr Kirsty Gardner-Berry is presenting a webinar for parents on Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD).
Information on the Internet about auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) can be quite confusing, with some sites telling parents one thing, and others suggesting something quite different. Often there are so many options to choose from that it can be difficult for parents to work out what's going to be best for their baby or child. This webinar will go through some of the most frequently asked questions from parents, and aims to provide some answers that will help parents see the journey forward more clearly.
Questions that will be covered:
