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.
Presenter(s): Tim Boyd, MPH
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This course provides an overview of policy issues and trends in audiologists' use of telepractice, including an overview of changes to state telepractice law implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The course is one in a set of practical programs that address specific aspects of remote practice in audiology. 
Presenter(s): Catherine Cronin Carotta, EdD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session introduces a model for implementing early childhood education and assessment practices for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The presenter uses classroom and home-based video samples to demonstrate how adapting the physical learning environment, addressing the emotional climate, selecting learning formats, and using language facilitation techniques can benefit all children. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Birth to Three: Working Together to Serve Children and Their Families.”
Presenter(s): Arlene Stredler-Brown, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Telepractice is becoming a recognized platform for delivering family-centered early intervention services. However, many providers and Part C Service Coordinators are not comfortable with this service delivery approach. This session reviews recent literature supporting telepractice as an effective, satisfactory delivery option and explores the obstacles related to the use of telepractice for the early intervention population. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Birth to Three: Working Together to Serve Children and Their Families.”
Presenter(s): Juliann J. Woods, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: As early intervention providers increasingly emphasize parent- or caregiver-implemented interventions using coaching, they need flexible and effective strategies to promote caregiver capacity. Capacity building occurs when early intervention providers foster caregivers’ confidence and competence to enhance their child’s learning and accomplish family-identified outcomes in everyday routines. This session explores how SLPs and audiologists can strengthen the caregiver–child relationship so that caregiver-implemented interventions produce positive outcomes for both the child and caregiver. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Birth to Three: Working Together to Serve Children and Their Families.”
Credit(s): PDHs: 3.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.3
Summary: These Perspectives (SIG 7) articles address therapy, patient education/counseling, and novel eHealth programs to serve clients across the lifespan. The topic of multisensory integration is addressed with a review of cognitive neuroscience literature and recommendations are made for therapy protocols for infants and children with hearing loss. There is a review of the development and outcomes of a multimedia education program for adults with hearing loss. The use of eHealth in patient-centered care for adults with hearing loss is considered for current practice and its future directions. Authors discuss considerations for the use of remote microphone technology by the oldest generation of patients. Finally, patient-centered strategies for communication during audiology consultations are presented to build trust and positive therapeutic relationships.

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.
