August 30 to September 1, Adva, Boya, and Yung-Ting visited Athens, Greece, to attend the 19th European Conference on Developmental Psychology. In different symposia and paper sessions, they presented their latest research findings about children or adolescents with a hearing loss, or who have a Developmental Language Disorder. Yung-Ting presented her unique studies on children with a cochlear implant from Taiwan. Discussions focused on the fact that social participation does not come naturally when communication forms a barrier, and what impact it can have on other areas of development as well as the possible ways to cope with it.
