Selected Online Leader articles about Educational Audiology:
Parent Engagement in Audiologic Habilitation
Although early identification of hearing loss and use of hearing technology are critical first steps, obtaining auditory access does not automatically result in improved language abilities. There is growing evidence that early intervention services that facilitate parent engagement often result in improved language acquisition.
Auditory Remediation for Patients With Landau-Kleffner Syndrome
Although there is a body of evidence to support medical treatment for LKS, there is limited information about the clinical management for the language disorder or acquired (central) auditory processing disorder [(C)APD].
Managing Sound Sensitivity in Individuals With ASDs
Hypersensitivity to sound is commonly believed to be a permanent symptom of autism that must be accommodated, but is that really the case?
Quality of Life of Youth With Hearing Loss
Adolescence is a life stage with rapid and major developmental changes, yet little is known about how these changes influence the quality of life of young people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
Youth Hearing at Risk: Tools for Fun and Learning
Check out these links and interactive online resources dedicated to educating youth—and people of all ages—about the importance of hearing health.
Classroom Acoustics: What Possibly Could Be New?
A child's ability to hear and listen is very different from that of an adult. When it comes to designing schools, however, not everyone seems to understand the implications of this difference.
Behavioral Hearing Assessment for Children With Autism
Audiological evaluation of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is an important component of initial assessment, but some aspects of ASD may present significant challenges to obtaining valid, reliable behavioral hearing assessment. Find out how to overcome them.
Professional Partners in the Schools
Audiologists and speech-language pathologists collaborate to help students with hearing loss.
School Design with Acoustics in Mind
An architect offers suggestions for designing quiet classrooms and practical ideas for improving speech intelligibility in new or existing buildings.
Re-evaluating the Efficacy of Frequency Transposition
Digital signal processing in recently introduced frequency-lowering algorithms in commercial hearing aids has shown significant benefits for adults and children with hearing loss.
A Place to Learn: How Architecture Affects Hearing and Learning
Everyone involved in education-from the architect to the teacher-needs to know more about how children learn so the learning environment can be made supportive for all children.
Hearing Protection for Student Musicians: Pittsburgh School Program Works With Musicians' Hearing Center
A Pittsburgh school program works with musicians hearing center to promote hearing conservation for elementary school musicians.
Students and Soundwaves: Five Strategies to Promote Good Classroom Acoustics
Good classroom acoustics can enhance the classroom learning environment to facilitate inclusion and response-to-intervention.
Intervention for a Child with Auditory Neuropathy/Dys-synchrony
Our experience has indicated that some children with AN/AD may develop age-appropriate speech and language with hearing aids, while others receive limited benefit from hearing aids but perform relatively well with a cochlear implant.
Contemporary Audiologic Assessment for Auditory Dys-Synchrony
Pediatric audiologists should be familiar with contemporary protocols for the assessment of AN/AD in children.
Early Hearing Detection and Intervention: Audiologists and SLPs Collaborate in Successful Program
Communication and cooperation among audiologists and speech-language pathologists is pivotal to the success of statewide programs for early hearing detection and intervention.
Unilateral Hearing Loss in Children
The topic of unilateral hearing loss is not new to the profession of audiology, but the advent of newborn hearing screening and recent research have renewed interest in this population of children.
Auditory Processing Disorder Evaluation
Motivation must be considered in APD evaluation, an area that needs further study.
Molecular Screening for Children With Hearing Loss: Why Do It?
Knowing the cause of a child's hearing loss may improve clinicans' abilities to provide gold-standard service.
Psychosocial Development of Children with Hearing Loss
Audiologists can support successful experiences at each developmental stage by working with the child and family.
Assessing Auditory Milestones in Children
Audiologists have both auditory and speech and language milestones to use as benchmarks for monitoring aspects of communication development.
Understanding Intervention for (C)APD: As Easy as A-B-C
In addition for formal treatment, professionals should encourage parents, teachers, and students to "play" with sounds and language using games to build auditory skills.
What Do Children Hear?
Auditory development is a prolonged process, despite the precocious development of the inner ear, and continues well into the school years, as children become more selective and more flexible about the way they process sound.
The Counseling Relationship
Audiologists adopt a necessary but unconventional role by forming a counseling relationship with those they serve.
What is the Role of Audition in Literacy?
Hearing plays an important role in acquiring early literacy skills, especially in considering the relationships between hearing, phonological processing, reading, and dyslexia.
Finding the Evidence for School-Based Clinical Decision Making
A step-by-step approach for clinical decision making to select interventions that incorporate the current best evidence, student-parent factors, and the context of the school culture.
Cultural Competence in Audiology
Our success as clinicians depends on our ability to ensure that cultural differences do not bias our test results.
