The Basics of Sound Processor Programming (WEB19053)

Presenter(s): Teresa Zwolan PhD, CCC-A
Course Description

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.”

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • describe the typical procedures performed in post-operative cochlear implant programming appointments in a manner that is easily understood by patients and families
  • summarize objective procedures that can be used to supplement behavioral procedures used in speech processor programming
  • list ways to determine if the program in a sound processor has been optimized
  • list the types of hearing aids that are currently able to bilaterally stream with contemporary cochlear implant systems
