FCEI 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues, please join us once again in Bad Ischl in the beautiful Austrian Salzkammergut for the 5th International Conference on Family-Centred Early Intervention for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children and their Families from May, 27th - 30th 2020.

The 2020 conference will focus on Diversity, in all the different ways we experience it in our field: in the children themselves with the huge variation in their strengths and needs; in parents and families and the different circumstances in which they raise and support their children; and in the diversity of ways in which services are provided and families are served in culturally sensitive contexts. 


We are pleased to welcome a wide range of international keynote presenters, bringing their experience and expertise as parents and professionals, both Hearing and Deaf, who are engaged in research and evidence informed service innovation:


  • Shelia Moodie (Canada)
  • Jesper Dammeyer (Denmark)
  • Amber Joy Martin (US)
  • Mojo Mathers (New Zealand)
  • Djenne Amal Morris (US)
  • Susan Wiley (US)
  • Christie Yoshinaga-Itano (US)
  • Paula Pittman (US)

The 5th International FCEI Congress will once again not only offer the opportunity to enhance knowledge and practice, but also to network, to meet old friends and colleagues and to make new ones, in a truly collaborative environment. Please join us!


Best regards,


The FCEI Organising Group
