Department of Hearing Impairments

About

Department of Hearing Impairments combines interdisciplinary knowledge including speech-language pathology, audiology, and deaf education and contributes uniquely to Speech and Language Pathology study program, Inclusive Education and Rehabilitation study program, to postgraduate doctoral study program Language, Speech and Hearing Disorders, and the postgraduate specialist study program Early Intervention in Educational Rehabilitation at our Faculty.

Central to the scientific, teaching, and professional work of the Department members, is the complexity of issues related to hearing loss, from audiological, rehabilitative, cultural, linguistic, and educational perspectives. This comprises understanding of plural and diverse linguistic contexts of deaf people and deaf children’s lives, and thus language fluency and effective communication as a basis for cognitive, social and emotional development. Considering the roles of spoken and signed languages, and increasingly sophisticated hearing technologies, creates the foundation in education of professionals who work with deaf children and adults. The Department is also focused on the affirmation of Croatian Sign Language, and supporting deaf bilingual education.
