SIG 9 Perspectives Vol. 22, No. 2, October 2012
This issue of Perspectives contains Part I of a two-part series on pediatric hearing loss and multiple special needs. We also focus on genetic concerns and additional learning needs for children with hearing loss. Another article focuses on (central) auditory processing disorders [(C)APD], a special interest of Velvet Buehler, a SIG 9 coordinating committee member.
You will be able to:
- characterize the most common causes of hearing loss in children
- identify the different genetic mechanisms involved in hearing loss
- identify characteristics of atypical learning styles in children who are deaf/hard of hearing
- describe the types or subprofiles of (C)APD and plan appropriate assessment and treatment objectives
- identify the types of auditory tests used in the (central) auditory processing evaluation, how to interpret the report, and ways to plan appropriate intervention and management
