SIG 7 Perspectives Vol. 19, No. 1, May 2012

In this issue of Perspectives, we describe the development of a multi-faceted, living-well approach to managing hearing loss with adults and their communication partners. We also present a case study of an individual with sudden profound sensorineural hearing loss following a traumatic head injury, which stresses the importance of a patient-centered approach. Finally, we present a tutorial on using the Baddeley and Hitch model of short-term working memory to investigate spoken language understanding, including a description of the model, its contribution to spoken language understanding, and possible applications.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • discuss the process used to develop and expand an endowed, community-based, holistic AR program, Living Well With Hearing Loss, that is designed to be financially sustainable
