Management Options for Unilateral and Asymmetrical Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SIG 6) (WEB19405)

Presenter(s): Cynthia Hogan,PhD, CCC-A; Janalene Jacobson,AuD, CCC-A; Melanie Meldrum,AuD, CCC-A; Sarah Ostlie, AuD, CCC-A
Course Description


This course explores the most commonly fit devices for patients whose hearing is significantly poorer in one ear than the other (e.g., single-sided deafness or asymmetric hearing loss) and identify factors that impact device selection and hearing management. Using data analysis and case examples from their clinic, the speakers discuss management options for asymmetrical sensorineural hearing loss, including traditional hearing aids, Bi-CROS devices, bone conduction devices (BCD), and cochlear implants (all with or without assistive devices).

This course is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of courses developed by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas. This course was developed by SIG 6: Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics.
