    Measuring the Effect of a Hearing Aid NEW

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Our field has developed a variety of standardized approaches to measure the effect of a hearing aid fitting. But in many cases, these audiologically measured outcomes do not necessarily correlate with the patient’s overall assessment of the value of the fitting. This course is designed to take a patient‑oriented approach to defining the effects of fittings.

     

    Personal Protection Equipment and Students with Hearing Loss NEW

    Dave Gordey, PhD 

    Children with hearing loss returning to school may encounter teachers and other school‑based professionals who will be using personal protective equipment (PPE). This webinar will share data on the effect of different PPE on audibility for students with hearing loss.

     

    The Aging Perceptual System NEW

    Don Schum, PhD 

    The majority of hearing aid users are older adults and, thus, it is incumbent to understand the nature of their perceptual difficulties. In this seminar, the effects of aging in combination with hearing loss on spoken language understanding will be examined.

     

    Our Evolving Understanding of the Reaction to Aging NEW

    Don Schum, PhD 

    As our main target audience for hearing care shifts into the Baby Boom generation, so should our understanding of how these individuals view the aging process. The well‑known attitudes and behaviors of this new generation of seniors will inevitably affect how they respond to developing communication difficulties.

    Hearing Aids for Children and Teens: Tips and Tricks for Successful Fittings

    Dave Gordey, PhD  

    This course reflects upon best practice in pediatric amplification and will discuss practical clinical strategies when following clinical guidelines. Meeting DSL targets, choice of test signal, applications of the RECD, and considerations for open/thin tube hearing device fittings for children will be discussed.

     

    Enhancing the Classroom Experience

    Candace Depp, AuD 

    Remote microphones are being utilized in schools to improve access to a teacher’s voice for children with hearing loss. However, little attention has been given to its design or usability by school-based professionals and their students. In this session, we will introduce research that impacted development of a device from Oticon that ushers in a new era of connection in the classroom and share its innovative features.

     

    Supporting Education, Advocacy and Knowledge for Students with Hearing Loss

    Dave Gordey, PhD  

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that deaf and hard of hearing students benefit when involved in structured, supportive, peer‑to‑peer experiences. Two successful school-based peer support groups located in Alberta and Ohio have achieved these positive outcomes. Factors contributing to success were a leader-mentor model combined with student, audiologist and community mentors. Our aim with this work was to develop a template for a structured school-based support and resource program, that could guide school-based hearing care professionals on how to bring together students with hearing loss to share experiences, learn about education, advocacy, and living with hearing loss. A survey of North American school‑based hearing professionals along with a review of the literature was completed.

  • > Technology and the Patient

    The Technical and Physiological Effects of Opn S™ NEW

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Oticon Opn S features a unique approach to processing speech in complex environments – OpenSound Navigator. In this seminar, the effect of this signal processing approach on the ability of the brain to lock on to more than one speaker in the environment will be demonstrated. Further, the unique speed and effectiveness of OpenSound Navigator compared to alternative approaches will also be demonstrated.

    Implementing Person‑Centered Care in Daily Practice: The Ida Institute Change Guide  NEW

    Oticon Patient Acceptance Technologies

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Most attention in the development of hearing aid technologies focuses on assisting the patient in challenging environments. However, we also recognize that patients require comfort, great sound quality and practical solutions such as rechargeability, connectivity and apps.

     

    Making Patients Ready for Amplification

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Many patients who seek out information about amplification may not be truly ready to be fit. In this course, we examine the mindset of the potential first time user and discuss approaches to make the patient ready to be a successful, long‑time user.

  • > Connectivity

    The Future of Connected Hearing Health Care

    Don Schum, PhD and Annette Mazevski, AuD, PhD
