The Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale: Subjective Fatigue in Pediatric Hearing Loss & in Additional Disabilities (WEB19843)

Presenter(s): Stephen Camarata, PhD, CCC-SLP; Benjamin Hornsby, PhD, CCC-A; Fred Bess, PhD; Hilary Davis, AuD, CCC-A
Course Description

Recent studies have implicated fatigue as an important consequence of listening effort, but the impact of fatigue on children is poorly understood. One problem is the lack of a measure of listening-related fatigue. In this presentation, the presenters (1) introduce the construct of listening-related fatigue, and (2) describe the development and validation of the Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale designed to quantify listening-related fatigue.

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