Oct. 11, 2014 10th Annual EHDI Family Conference


Get Your Game On!

Indiana Hands & Voices Presents:

The Early Hearing Detection & Intervention Family Conference


alt If you have a child who is deaf or hard-of-hearing this is a conference you don't want to miss!


Carla Zimmerman is a speech language pathologist and LSLS certified auditory verbal therapist, and the president of Zimmerman Speech & Hearing in Tempe, Arizona. Her years of experience with children who are deaf and hard of hearing have given her thousands of hours of observing when things are working, and when they are not; her passion is to unravel the puzzle of what isn’t working for a child, and then to work with the parents and child to turn things around. Carla endeavors to guide each of her students to be the very best that they can be. Her students include four Graeme Clark Scholarship recipients. As an Assistant Professor in the Doctor of Audiology program at A.T. Still University, she strives to instill in future audiologists the passion for excellence for all their pediatric patients through a team approach. She helped to establish the Arizona chapter of Hands & Voices, and she continues to serve on the board. Carla currently resides in Gilbert with her husband Joe, their beagles and school of goldfish.
