Differential Diagnoses in Children With Hearing Loss: Unpacking the Concerns of Over-Diagnosis, Under-Diagnosis, & Comorbidity (WEB19841)

Presenter(s): Elizabeth Adams Costa, PhD; Nancy Mellon, MS; Meredith Ouellette, MS; Colleen Caverly, PhD
Course Description

Despite advances in hearing technology and intervention, language, academic, and social outcomes in children with hearing loss generally lag behind those of their hearing counterparts. Providing differential diagnoses is challenging, given the cascading effects of auditory deprivation language delays. This presentation identifies commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss and describes the process of effectively making differential diagnoses.

This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention.
