SIG 7 Perspectives Vol. 20, No. 2, October 2013

This issue of Perspectives focused on historical and current topics in aural rehabilitation. Included was a retrospective discussion of changes in the field over 40 years in the areas of hearing aid selection, hearing aid fitting, hearing aid options and distribution, and adult group aural rehabilitation. Authors made suggestions for future directions in each of these areas. Second, authors discussed music perception by adult cochlear implant clients including materials and guidelines for assessment and training. They presented a vocabulary of musical terms and a review of research concerning auditory training that could lead to improvements in music perception and appreciation. Finally, authors examined hearing aid counseling by audiologists. Included is a review of the counseling responses implemented during routine hearing aid fittings as well as evidence for recommended best practices in audiologic counseling using a patient-centered model.
