Have you ever wondered why some people have normal hearing and others do not? This course will cover different methods (i.e. visual, behavioral, and physiological measures) that are used to assess auditory function in the outer, middle, inner ear, and beyond. Students will gain a solid introductory foundation on clinical methods that are used and how information gained from different assessment methods are combined to assess overall auditory function. In additional, students will also learn about genetic and non-genetic disorders that impact auditory function. prereq: [3302, 3305W] or instr consent

Class Description:
This course will provide a basic orientation to audiologic assessment and disorders of the auditory system. The course is geared towards undergraduate students majoring in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences. The anatomy of the ear and the scope of practice in audiology will be reviewed. Emphasis will be placed on the tests used to assess hearing, including pure-tone audiometry and masking, speech audiometry, immittance, electrophysiological tests, pure-tone screening, and pediatric assessment. Various disorders of the outer, middle, and inner ear will be described. Case management for clients with hearing loss will also be discussed. Students will obtain hands-on experience with otoscopic examination, pure tone audiometry, tympanometry, and hearing screening.
