1. To collect critical information from assessments to determine how vision, current hearing, fine and gross motor and current cognitive development impact communication, auditory perception, prelinguistic communication, receptive and expressive communication (What of his skills might be used to facilitate communication/language; what needs might need adaptation and accommodations.) with a child who has a significant vision loss and CIs. (Team members will bring summaries of most current assessments to discuss potential impact on communication).

3. To review "Evidence-Based" practices in Cochlear Implants and Routine-Based Intervention (a best practice in early childhood) and assist the family to use techniques to embed multiple skills across routines.
4. To share critical information so that all members of the team and Kathy can all use similar intervention techniques for Carver.
