Initiatives such as universal newborn hearing screening and early hearing detection and intervention programs have improved the early identification of hearing loss so children can receive intervention services at a young age. But many of these children still experience significant delays in communication development as they get older. This webinar will discuss what audiologists and speech-language pathologists can do to support optimal communication outcomes in children who use hearing aids. The webinar will explore evidence-based assessment of audibility, monitoring and supporting consistent hearing aid use, and tools for documenting outcomes.
You will be able to:
- implement an evidence-based clinical protocol for quantifying audibility for infants and children with hearing aids
- document outcomes using speech recognition or auditory development questionnaires to identify children who may be at risk for delays in communication development
