Perspectives, SIG 8, Vol. 2, Part 1, 2017
Three interesting but diverse articles are featured in this edition of Perspectives. One article presented a positive viewpoint of new areas where cochlear implants are making an impact. These areas include single-sided deafness and high frequency hearing loss, among others. Another article presented an overview of audism and how it may be present in the words and actions of audiologists. The article also presented suggestions for education and approach that can help improve the relations between audiologists and the Deaf community. Finally, an article that contained information about hearing loss in urban youth and how disparities that exist might be ameliorated.
