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: 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.

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.

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 webinar explores challenges school professionals face regarding Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT), discusses preferred practices for determining HAT eligibility, and shares practical guides to use in your work setting. The speaker addresses common questions like: "How can I ensure that this HAT is appropriate for this student?" "How can I ensure that the equipment is working each day?" "How can I get buy-in from school partners regarding the equipment's day-to-day use?"

Summary: This course demonstrates how Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is using telehealth applications to address the needs of children with hearing loss during the COVID-19 pandemic and into the future, including remote hearing aid evaluations, fittings, programming, repairs, and functional benefit assessments. The course is one in a set of practical programs that address specific aspects of remote practice in audiology.

Summary: Knowing when, why, and who to refer for central auditory evaluation is challenging, particularly in school settings. This session will address questions that professionals who work in schools or with young people may face: Are there “red flags" for a CAPD? What will I know after the evaluation that I don’t already know? Will results change services? Are we “overtesting/over-referring”? Are there ways to provide screening and/or intervention services that align with school-based RtI/MTSS models of intervention? How can schools screen for processing issues in ways that meet students’ needs and use resources efficiently? After screening, what’s next? Are procedures different across work settings? This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: Initiatives such as universal newborn hearing screening and early hearing detection and intervention programs have improved the early identification of hearing loss so children can receive intervention services at a young age. But many of these children still experience significant delays in communication development as they get older. This webinar will discuss what audiologists and speech-language pathologists can do to support optimal communication outcomes in children who use hearing aids. The webinar will explore evidence-based assessment of audibility, monitoring and supporting consistent hearing aid use, and tools for documenting outcomes.
