Listening Effort, Fatigue, Social Isolation, & Dementia: Correlates of Age Related Hearing Loss
Presented by Barbara E. Weinstein, PhD
Course: #8503 Level: 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.

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
Course: #8073 Level: 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).
