Program Focus: Knowledge

Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:

  1. Identify the need for educational audiology support for our children with hearing loss.
  2. Identify 3 ways that a clinical audiologist can support the child in a school setting.
  3. Discuss the benefits and limitations of a clinical audiologist in supporting a child in the schools

Description: Children who experience hearing loss need appropriate hearing technology, service provision by a pediatric audiologist, and support of an educational audiologist to be successful. Unfortunately, many students are in areas where educational audiology services are limited, or possibly non-existent. When this occurs, the clinical audiologist will need to assume the role of the educational audiologist. This session will review the need for specific educational supports, resources for clinical audiologists, and the benefits and limitations to this type of service delivery.
