Presenter(s): Nicole L Marrone, PhD, CCC-A
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session provides practical information on implementing and expanding aural/audiologic rehabilitation programs for adults with hearing loss and their communication partners. The presenter discusses and provides examples of components of successful aural rehabilitation services, including assessment, communication training, technologies, and group counseling.
Presenter(s): Howard Francis, MD, MBA, FACS; Jennifer D Yeagle, MEd, CCC-A
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session explores what is currently known about the downstream effects of hearing loss in older adults and discusses ways to proactively optimize communication outcomes for older adults using cochlear implants. The presenters address cochlear implant candidacy in this growing population, counselling for patients and their families/caregivers, and service delivery modification ideas.
Presenter(s): Sarah A Cust, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This presentation addresses the underlying neuropathology of ataxia, dysarthria-specific assessment and treatment for degenerative ataxias, and the importance of cognitive assessment and treatment. The presenter highlights recent advances in intervention, including noninvasive brain stimulation.
Presenter(s): Michelle Leigh Arnold, AuD, CCC-A; Debra Dobbs, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: Older adults must make important decisions about their end-of-life care, and those with hearing and other communication disorders need special accommodations to participate in these important decisions to the fullest extent possible. This session discusses the communication needs of patients in the final stages of life, including the use of various hearing technologies, such as hearing aids, personal sound amplifiers, and pocket talkers. The presenters discuss tools to facilitate conversations among patients, family members, and caregivers.

Summary: The field of audiology focuses mostly on the peripheral auditory system-in both diagnosis and management-but other factors (e.g., "hidden hearing loss" and/or reduced cognitive ability) may play a role in an individual's ability to communicate in diverse environments. This session discusses how audiologists can incorporate evoked potential testing into the assessment battery to obtain a more comprehensive picture of auditory function.
Presenter(s): Victoria A Sanchez, AuD, PhD, CCC-A, F-AAA; Ann Clock Eddins, PhD, MBA, CCC-A, FAAA
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: Emerging treatment approaches for age-related hearing loss include alternative interventions aimed at ameliorating symptoms and slowing down or even preventing hearing loss, in contrast with current treatment approaches, which focus primarily on amplification and communication strategies. This session will explore up-and-coming approaches, such as pre-clinical investigation of hormones (e.g., Aldosterone) correlated with auditory function; medicinal-related interventions; and challenges to timelines to bring new treatments to market.

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Published research indicates that outcomes in children with hearing loss are generally lower than their hearing counterparts. Given the cascading effects auditory deprivation and language delays may cause in children, providing differential diagnoses can present a challenge. This course identifies commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss and describes the process of making differential diagnoses.

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Medical professionals who use hearing aids can face challenges when they need to perform auscultation (listening to sounds from various organs, most often with a stethoscope) as part of their job. While the options may not seem straightforward, audiologists can play a key role in helping these medical professionals find an amplified stethoscope solution. This on demand webinar (available beginning March 21, 2024) will discuss key considerations, potential options, and practical steps for helping medical professionals with hearing loss obtain the best solution.
Presenter(s): Kimberly A Jenkins, PhD, CCC-A
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: In sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) environments, hearing aid features such as Bluetooth and bidirectional microphones—which allow seamless communication between hearing aids and communication devices—are considered security risks. This on demand webinar (available beginning March 16, 2024) will address considerations for hearing aids for patients who work in secure locations as well as share strategies currently being used by providers within the National Capital Region.

Summary: This session discusses a study that examined the feasibility of telehealth administration of narrative and procedural discourse tasks to individuals with TBI and matched controls. Results support the feasibility of collecting discourse samples via telehealth. Although the participants' discourse performance distinguished the TBI and control groups on the narrative task, no differences between the groups were noted for the procedural task.
