Perspectives, SIG 9, Vol. 3, Part 1, 2018
This issue contains two articles. First, authors describe a procedure for completing and applying electrically evoked stapedial reflex threshold (ESRT) measures, objective measures that correlates to upper comfort/stimulation (C/M) levels, to cochlear implant programing. The authors explain evidence, research, set-up, equipment, and procedural practices for ESRTs. Next, authors focus on speech, language, and hearing professionals who provide informational counseling for individuals with hearing loss to facilitate success in a variety of settings. The focus and content of the information changes throughout the life of the individual from initial diagnosis through young adulthood. These shifts, guided by speech-language pathologists in collaboration with professionals from multiple disciplines who work with this population, can help to maximize a successful life trajectory.
You will be able to:
- discuss equipment for and completion of electrically evoked stapedial reflex threshold measures
- outline delivery methods and foundational content for informational counseling with families of children with hearing loss
