Course Catalog Description:
Ever wondered how hearing loss is treated? This course will present an introductory foundation on treatment options for individuals with different types of hearing loss. The three Ts of rehabilitating hearing loss are covered. The first T includes how diagnostic visual, behavioral, and physiological tests results are interpreted and used in the design of treatment plans for individuals with hearing loss. The second T will cover technology that is used to treat hearing loss. This section will provide details on how hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other implantable hearing devices work and how clinical decisions are made with regards to who gets a hearing aid vs. a cochlear implant. Hearing assistive technology and wireless devices such as FM, loop and infrared systems will all be covered. The third T will cover treatment options for adults and children with hearing loss. This section will provide details on informational and personal-adjustment counseling, non-technology treatment options, and person-centered and family-centered intervention and training plans for adults as well as children with hearing loss.
Class Notes:
This class has two components. On Thursdays this class will meet synchronously and remotely. Attendance will be required. Instead of a required Tuesday meeting, remaining work will be asynchronous and available to students online.
