VideoAudio
Course: #9043Level: Introductory1 Hour
Families of children with hearing loss present with unique needs and challenges. Families’ issues commonly center around accepting hearing loss as well as planning management. Children need support regarding social, emotional and academic development. Hearing loss may impact speech, language, listening, reading, and learning – skills that are critical during childhood years and beyond. The impact of hearing loss on children and families is individual but there are many common challenges even for those with the most access to resources and support.This course will present information and resources for social workers, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, school personnel, therapists and other professionals to support them in their work with families of children with hearing loss.

Evaluation of Children with Hearing Loss and Suspected Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Early Intervention Perspective
Presented by Wendy Deters, MS, CCC-SLP, LSL Cert AVEd

Presented by Barbara E. Weinstein, PhD
VideoAudioText
Course: #8732Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) has been identified as a potentially modifiable risk factor for dementia.

This course will provide an overview of dementia, its connections to hearing loss, and therapeutic modifications SLPs can employ to optimize audibility and communication.

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Strategies for Maximizing Speech-Recognition Performance: Adults With Mild to Moderately Severe Sensorineural Hearing Loss
Presented by Jeremy Donai, AuD, PhD, CCC-A, Jeremy C. Schwartz, BS
Text
Course: #8668Level: Advanced1 Hour
Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case examined the question, "For adults with mild sloping to moderately severe sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), is frequency-lowering processing or extended-bandwidth processing preferable in improving speech recognition performance in quiet and noisy listening environments?" The related literature search & analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision & application to clinical practice, will also be discussed.

Listening Effort, Fatigue, Social Isolation, & Dementia: Correlates of Age Related Hearing Loss
Presented by Barbara E. Weinstein, PhD
Video
Course: #8503Level: Intermediate1 Hour
A hallmark of age related hearing loss is difficulty understanding in noisy environments. The difficulty requires significant listening effort on the listener’s part which, when prolonged, is associated with fatigue. The fatigue in combination with the listening effort and cognitive load often leads people to withdraw from social situations. Social disengagement has many downstream negative outcomes - including dementia - that will be discussed, along with simple solutions for clinical practice.
