Marion Downs Lecture in Pediatric Audiology: Enhancing the Auditory Experience for Children Who Wear Hearing Aids (0.1 AAA/Tier 1 CEUs)
AAA 2021 Virtual: Marion Downs Lecture in Pediatric Audiology: Enhancing the Auditory Experience for Children Who Wear Hearing Aids
Presented at AAA 2021 Virtual
Presenter: Ryan McCreery, PhD
Duration: 60 minutes
CEUs: 0.10 AAA/Tier 1 CEUS
Instructional Level: Advanced
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:
- Implement evidence-based hearing aid verification processes that maximize auditory experience for children with hearing loss.
- Develop approaches for assessing consistency of hearing aid use in children and provide strategies to support children and their families.
- Analyze the dose-response relationship between hearing aids and developmental outcomes to improve how children with hearing loss function with hearing aids.
The widespread implementation of newborn hearing screening has provided an unprecedented opportunity for early intervention and amplification for children with hearing loss. These developments led to new research questions and areas of inquiry about the effects of hearing aids on the development of children with hearing loss. The goal of this presentation is to review the theory of cumulative auditory experience and how audiologists can use this new knowledge to improve outcomes for children with hearing loss and their families.
