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
Video
Course: #8876Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
This course will examine the similarities and differences between hearing loss (HL) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) so that SLPs can assist in differential diagnosis for children 0-3 years old. Evaluation tools, speech/language characteristics of the degrees of hearing loss, listening skill progression, and typical pragmatic skill development of children with hearing loss will also be discussed.

Maximizing Outcomes for School-aged Children with Hearing Loss: Audiology and speech/language pathology partnership
Presented by Gail M. Whitelaw, PhD
Video
Course: #8750Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will focus on information as the foundation to maximize outcomes for children with hearing loss when the audiologist and SLP work together as a team. The information addressed will assist the SLP in effectively accessing audiology input to support students/patients with hearing loss.

A Dementia Primer for Speech-Language Pathologists
Presented by Barbara E. Weinstein, PhD
VideoAudio
Course: #8732Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) has been identified as a potentially modifiable risk factor for dementia. ARHL and dementia are costly conditions because of their marked impact on social functioning, health outcomes and well-being. 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.

Understanding Auditory Processing Disorders in Young Children
Presented by Jane Madell, PhD, CCC-A/SLP, LSLS Cert AVT
Video
Course: #8472Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will discuss evaluation and management of auditory processing disorders (APD) in young children. The role of different professionals will be reviewed and case discussion will be included.

Research Watch Report, Issue 6
Presented by Meredith Poore Harold, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #8289Level: Intermediate0.5 Hours
This collection of reviews highlights a month of clinically relevant research findings for pediatric and school-based SLPs. Topics include use of biofeedback in articulation intervention, screenings and predictors of social outcomes for children with autism, emergent literacy in children with hearing loss, and grammatical intervention in children with language disorders.

The AUDacity of Listening: Early Intervention for Children with Hearing Loss
Presented by K. Todd Houston, PhD, CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert AVT
Video
Course: #8068Level: Introductory1 Hour
Today, infants and toddlers with hearing loss have more opportunities than ever to achieve listening and spoken language outcomes that are on par with their hearing peers. With early identification, early intervention, the use of appropriate hearing technology, and the active involvement of parents and caregivers, professionals can support and facilitate these outcomes through the use of Auditory-Verbal Therapy.

Pearson's EBP Brief: Auditory-Verbal Therapy as an Intervention Approach for Children Who Are Deaf: A Review of the Evidence
Presented by Lisa Bowers, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #8073Level: Advanced1 Hour
Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Would young deaf children who participate in AVT services provided by an LSLS cert. AVT demonstrate gains in language skills similar to their typical hearing peers?
” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the SCAN-3:C (Keith, 2009).

The Impact of Unilateral Hearing Loss and Single Sided Deafness for the Pediatric Population: Considerations for Speech-Language Pathologists, presented in partnership with Cincinnati Children's
Presented by Lori Garland, MS, CCC-A, FAAA, Charlotte Ruder, MS, CCC-SLP/A
VideoAudio
Course: #8039Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
The impact of unilateral hearing loss and single sided deafness often goes unnoticed and untreated. Special considerations should be given to the challenges of listening with only one normal hearing ear for successful auditory development and communication.
