DAY 1 - ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION

Thursday 15 October 2015, 9am - 4pm
 
This event has been endorsed for 15 CPD points (7.5 points each day) by Audiology Australia. This workshop was also endorsed by AG Bell Academy for 12 CEUs. LSLS certification numbers will be required at registration on attendance.
 
This workshop will focus on evaluation and early management of children with hearing loss and other auditory disorders. We will discuss the role of the audiologist in development and management of audition. Discussion will include considerations for determining what a child is hearing and how to use that information for management:
  • How do we know what a child is hearing?
  • How do we know if technology is providing sufficient information?
  • Reconsiderations for selecting technology.
  • Considerations for special populations
  • Using speech perception information to assist in management.
  • Considerations for selection of technology including hearing aids, cochlear implants, and FM systems.
  • Interpretation of test results to plan habilitation management.
Auditory disorders other than hearing loss will be discussed, including auditory processing disorders, auditory attention and auditory learning disorders. Discussion will include differentiating auditory learning disorders from language learning disorders and other learning disorders.
