This year we are pleased to announce our guest speaker will be Lydia Denworth. She is the author of I Can Hear You Whisper, which the New York Review of Books called “rigorous” and “enthralling.” When her youngest son, Alex, was identified with significant hearing loss, Ms. Denworth thought she needed to understand everything about ears and ending up exploring the brain. I Can Hear You Whisper is the story of Ms. Denworth’s investigation into the science of sound, language acquisition, brain plasticity, and Deaf culture. Ms. Denworth is also a regular contributor to Psychology Today and Scientific American and her work has appeared in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Parents, Vogue and many other publications. Other presentations for parents and professionals will be announced at a later date. There will be something for everyone! This meeting is open to the general public.
