Adolescent Peer Relationships and Emotion Recognition as a Function of Auditory Status (PD102509)

Presenter(s): Shae D Morgan; Sarah Crow; Andrea D Warner-Czyz
Course Description

This course presents a study that examined the effect of auditory status on emotion recognition and the link between emotion recognition to social well-being in adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) or typical hearing (TH). Twenty-five adolescents (15 TH, 15 DHH) completed an online study examining emotion recognition and social well-being (e.g., friendship, loneliness). Adolescents with TH attained adult-like emotion recognition, but DHH participants showed large variability reflecting differences in hearing levels, age at device fitting, or duration of device experience. Better subjective emotion perception coincided with less loneliness. These data highlight the importance of understanding social consequences associated with missing emotional cues in adolescents, particularly in those at higher risk for perceptual difficulties such as the DHH group.

This course is a recorded technical research session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4534V).

Learning Outcomes
After completing this session, you will be able to:

  • Describe the effect of hearing differences on emotion perception and social well-being
  • Compare emotion perception in adolescents to adults with typical hearing or hearing differences
  • Evaluate clinical applications of emotion perception relative to social satisfaction
