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.

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?

Summary: Recent studies from the presenters’ laboratory demonstrate a relationship between electrode-to-modiolus distance and channel independence. Specifically, children and adults who use cochlear implants (CIs) (precurved electrodes) demonstrate performance gains up to 12 and 16 channels. The presenters’ working theory is that greater channel independence affords better spectrotemporal resolution. This presentation describes the relationship between spectrotemporal processing and CI outcomes for adult and pediatric CI users. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention. This session was developed by, and presenters invited by, Hearing, Tinnitus, and Vestibular Science.

Summary: Children and adults who use cochlear implants and have additional exceptionalities present challenges in diagnostic testing and therapeutic intervention for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. This session reviews current research on communication and quality of life in this population, while also highlighting real-world clinical practices in assessing, treating, and defining success in these patients. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention. The session was developed by, and presenters invited by, Audiology Implantables.

Summary: This session gives professionals a “behind-the-curtain” view of what goes on during a cochlear implant programming appointment to inform their work with children and adults who use these devices. This perspective should be particularly useful when it comes to the management of the hearing aid on the contralateral ear as well as the management of rehabilitative and therapeutic needs. The speaker places special emphasis on how professionals can best communicate with each other to maximize the outcomes for individuals who use cochlear implants. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: Many school-based personnel are unsure how to best support students with cochlear implants, and this session explores how clinicians across settings (clinics and schools) and professions (audiologists, SLPs, and educators) can work together to help students reach their goals. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: Many individuals with unilateral cochlear implants are good candidates for a second device. This session discusses some of the roadblocks to sequential or simultaneous cochlear implantation and how to overcome them. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: Cochlear implant technology has evolved over time to include sophisticated features such as accessory-based and direct streaming, remote control devices and apps, bimodal compatibility, and more – and hearing health providers must become proficient with it all. This session explores working with and efficiently troubleshooting these modern and increasingly common systems, such as remote microphones, DM/FM systems, and mobile devices to improve patient outcomes and increase clinic efficiency. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: In general, adults and children who obtain cochlear implants achieve favorable speech recognition outcomes. However, the presence of background noise—even minimal amounts—can negatively impact speech understanding. This session provides an overview of the hearing assistance technologies available for individuals with cochlear implants as well as evidence of the efficacy and effectiveness of the various types. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”
Presenter(s): Regina Presley, AuD, CCC-A, FAAA

Summary: This session discusses the latest advances and updates in cochlear implant technology, including electrode array design, approaches to preservation of residual hearing, the variety of processors and compatible approaches to successful bimodal use, wireless technology, and the array of accessory options available for optimal listening. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”
