Summary: This course discusses validated technologies for remote hearing screening in the digital age, including options for no-touch screening with uncalibrated equipment and low-touch remote screening. The course is part of a set of practical programs that address specific aspects of remote practice in audiology.

Summary: This course focuses on social-emotional learning milestones and current trends in research regarding social-emotional learning for children who are deaf or hard of hearing relative to peers with typical hearing. A research team reports on findings from a survey of caregivers of children with hearing loss regarding their knowledge, ratings, and facilitation of social-emotional learning in their children.

Summary: To maximize the amount and quality of data collected in research repositories for children with hearing loss, attention must be given to clinical utility as well. This course describes a project that integrates data collection for general research purposes with routine clinical flow.

Summary: Individuals with hearing loss experience negative psychosocial consequences such as distress, depression, and loneliness. If they also experience excessive negative emotional responses (i.e., confusion, frustration, anger) or reduced positive emotional responses (i.e., happiness) compared to listeners with normal hearing, they might be unmotivated to approach communication situations. This course describes a study whose purpose was to determine the feasibility of using facial expressions to measure emotional responses. Authors present data on facial expressions seen in individuals with normal hearing during speech-in-noise tasks with varying signal-to-noise ratios. This course is a recorded technical research session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4629V).

Summary: This session focuses on the use of in-situ measures and development of patient amplification prescriptions. The importance of in-situ measures is widely overlooked or misunderstood. Dissecting the benefits of this and other built-in manufacturer software features will provide opportunity for significant improvement in fitting outcomes and patient satisfaction over conventional first-fit settings. Proper implementation and use of these features should decrease time and effort in fitting and counseling, and decrease the need for repeat visits for re-programming.This course is a recorded technical session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4040V).

Summary: Young musicians are exposed to traumatic sound levels that might increase their risk for tinnitus and noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Music and noise are known environmental risk factors for tinnitus and NIHL. This course examines a hypothesis that genetic variants might further explain clinical heterogeneity in tinnitus and NIHL.

Summary: A better understanding is needed of the barriers and facilitators in accessing communication services by gender diverse individuals. This session describes a conceptual model of health care access and shows its use in developing a group solution to improve gender expansive individuals' access of communication services. This course is a recorded technical session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4027V). Content Disclosure: This session focuses on one specific intervention model; this is a quality improvement evaluation of a group therapy model.

Summary: There is evidence that many factors contribute to the varied performance outcomes among pediatric cochlear implant (CI) recipients, including etiology and quality of the electrode neuron interfaces (ENI). This course examines a study that investigated the intersection of these factors by analyzing the records and device settings for 156 children with confirmed diagnoses of either enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) or Connexin-26 mutations. The current results show that levels needed for perception, at threshold or comfort level, are higher for children with EVA compared to those with Connexin-26 mutations. There are also systematic differences in impedance. These findings may reflect important differences in the quality of the ENI for children with these two etiologies. Future directions could include the development of etiologically tailored programming strategies to improve CI outcomes. This course is a recorded technical research session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4536V).

Summary: This course presents a study that examined the effect of auditory status on emotion recognition and the link between emotion recognition to social well-being in adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) or typical hearing (TH). Twenty-five adolescents (15 TH, 15 DHH) completed an online study examining emotion recognition and social well-being (e.g., friendship, loneliness). Adolescents with TH attained adult-like emotion recognition, but DHH participants showed large variability reflecting differences in hearing levels, age at device fitting, or duration of device experience. Better subjective emotion perception coincided with less loneliness. These data highlight the importance of understanding social consequences associated with missing emotional cues in adolescents, particularly in those at higher risk for perceptual difficulties such as the DHH group. This course is a recorded technical research session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4534V).

Summary: This course presents a systematic review that aimed to answer the PICO-format clinical research question: For adults with cochlear implants and severe to profound postlingual sensorineural hearing loss, is auditory training effective in improving listening outcomes? A systematic search of five databases identified 331 articles published between January 2010 and November 2019. Ten studies met the inclusion criteria and were reviewed by three of the four authors. The 10 studies that met the review criteria comprised two randomized control trials, one quasi-experimental case control study, and seven pre/post case series. The majority of studies represented low or very low levels of evidence. This review highlights the need for further research to examine auditory training benefits for adults with cochlear implants. This course is a recorded technical research session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4535V).
