Factors That Exacerbate or Ameliorate Listening Effort in Children Who Are Hard of Hearing (WEB19846)

Presenter(s): Elizabeth Walker, PhD, CCC-A/SLP; Erin Picou, AuD, PhD, CCC-A
Course Description

Listening effort is the allocation of mental resources to overcome obstacles in goal pursuit while listening. Sustained increased effort has important developmental implications. Factors that increase access to acoustic cues can reduce listening effort. This presentation addresses the measurement of listening effort, in addition to how language and auditory input affect effort in children who are hard of hearing.
