EDDH 502. Audiology: Diagnostics in Infants/Child. (3).

Teachers, therapists and others who provide services to children with hearing loss need a basic introduction to: causes, types, degrees and measurement of hearing loss; the nature of sound; anatomy and physiology of the hearing mechanism; audiograms; classroom acoustics; amplification, and assistive listening devices, including cochlear implants and sensory devices for educational settings. Opportunities to observe (10 hours) assessment of hearing loss: newborn hearing screenings, ABR and OAE testing, and behavioral audiometry in young children are integral to the course as well as implications for early intervention, parent education, and language development.
