Class Description:
The first few weeks of this course will build upon the knowledge acquired in your introductory course in Audiology. You will be expected to know fine details about test procedures and test interpretation, including understanding the content of journal articles from your readings that address these issues. An important part of the transition from undergraduate to graduate study is to know how to support your clinical decisions and the procedures you select with journal citations. Audiologic Assessment II, the second course in the sequence, will introduce material that is not presented in any detail in most undergraduate curricula if it is presented at all. This course will emphasize physiological measures, such as ABR and otoacoustic emissions. Laboratory exercises are designed to complement the lectures in these areas. By the end of this two-course sequence, you will have a strong foundation in auditory diagnosis using both behavioral and physiological measures. The laboratory exercises and practical exams are designed to provide you with the skills to enter a practicum in a medical setting with adults. Audiologic Assessment III, a course that emphasizes balance function, will complete the series. After successful completion of this course you will be able to: 1) perform independently a basic audiologic assessment on an adult client. This includes case history, otoscopy, tuning fork tests, pure tone audiometry, masking, word recognition performance for monosyllabic words, and the aural acoustic immittance battery. 2) Determine the need for selecting an assessment tool from the basic battery of tests listed above 3) Know how to interpret the results for the basic battery of audiometric tests for persons with normal hearing and impaired hearing 4) Know the effectiveness and precision of various tests in the basic battery based on results from scientific studies published in peer-reviewed journals
