Great presentation filled with practical content that will help me address changes in my own hearing and in the hearing of those around me.
Review by: Jo-Ann on June 21, 2012
This presentation covered information that practicing SLPs in school and medical settings often lack, but that is so critical for us. I feel that I am better able to work with elderly patients with hearing loss as well as others I encounter in everyday situations because. this was a practical and highly informative session.

I do not receive many courses related to hearing in the elderly population, and it is so important for my work with them as a speech pathologist. Thank you.

Good information, chosen for its relevance to clinical practice and designed to improve services for older adults with hearing impairment. Presentation clear, well organized.
Review by: Janice on June 16, 2012
I believe that this course was excellent in presentation & organization. Further, I liked how straightforward the exam was. I feel that if I have to go back and spend more than a few minutes after attending a one-hour presentation, hunting for answers (or trying to figure out what exactly the presenter is looking for on a vague question) then I really think that my CEU time is not really one hour, but longer. Those types of exams can be frustrating to me because I think that I should be able to feel confident in finding the answers easily withing the content of the handouts as the presentation is occurring. So, if I have to spend lots of time after the course is over, those are the classes that I would not recommend to others. This class was a perfect example of how I think all of the classes should be organized, especially the exam.

Excellent examples and great tips for quality of life issues; also good answers to questions
Review by: Chamonix on June 15, 2012
Easy to understand information following a logical sequence. Loved the review of the Stages of Change model and how applies to hearing and getting help or hearing aides. Liked emphasis on overall well being versus just hearing the sounds. Good pace.
Review by: Martha on June 15, 2012
very useful and practical information that was presented extremely well
Review by: Susan on June 15, 2012
The information was very up to date and presented clearly with graphics, etc, The speaker had a good rate of speech and was easy to listen to. Even though I am an SLP I learned new things, which is the whole point, right? :-)
