The Carel du Toit Centre is thrilled to announce the

30 March – 1 April 2017

The attendees of this conference can be assured to gain knowledge and clinical applications to allow them to be Raising the Bar in the diagnosis and management of infants and children with hearing loss.

This is the 4th Ndiyeva (translated from the Xhosa, “I can hear”) Audiology Conference that the Carel du Toit Centre will be hosting since its establishment in 2008. 

The conference continues to grow, as it offers a distinctive opportunity for all the partners and role players involved in paediatric hearing loss to meet, review and renew their knowledge and clinical practice. 

Ndiyeva is the only conference of its kind offering the most recent advances in Audiological diagnosis, -management, -intervention as well as Educational support for infants and children with hearing loss.

Our previous conference was themed
‘Beyond the Basics’ and our 4th Ndiyeva Conference
is themed: “Raising the Bar"

- Raising the Bar
… of our professionals’ clinical expertise

- Raising the Bar… of professionals’ knowledge
- Raising the Bar… for the children and families we serve
- Raising the Bar… with our expectations of outcomes    

Because many diverse professions are involved in the field of paediatric hearing loss, the programme will regularly be divided into coinciding symposia, focusing on a diverse range of topics of interest to all delegates attending.
