This presentation will provide a general review of candidacy for Electric Acoustic Stimulation (EAS) and impact of mid to high frequency hearing loss. It will then address specific auditory training exercises that EAS recipients can practice to adjust to new sounds and maximally benefit from their device.
In this course presenters will discuss the study design and important outcomes from the US Clinical Trial for Electric-Acoustic Stimulation. Data collected from study subjects will be presented within the context of the clinical trial as well as from additional testing completed at the lead study site.
This workshop is intended for professionals who work with children who have hearing loss and are responsible for teaching early-childhood spoken language in a clinic and/or classroom setting. Topics will include clinical and classroom implications from recent intervention literature (e.g. performance-driven instruction and vocabulary teaching) on children with cochlear implants.

This presentation will review current research on the link between hearing loss and cognitive decline/dementia. It will then address auditory training and cognitive therapy that may be implemented to improve communication skills. This course is open captioned.
'A good review of how important hearing is cognition and mental function'Read Reviews
This course is focused on describing the definition of the Electrical Stapedial Reflex Threshold (ESRT), its pathway, procedures in obtaining, and clinical use and application for the programming of cochlear implants.
This workshop is intended for professionals who work with children who have hearing loss and come from families that are bilingual or do not speak the majority language. Topics covered will include assessment considerations and intervention models along with implementing strategies that facilitate successful bilingual learning.
This webinar examines important issues regarding cochlear implants for adults with age-related hearing loss, including candidacy and factors that might affect candidacy decision making, postoperative outcomes, and patient management and rehabilitation.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will have an understanding of Theory of Mind (ToM) and how it impacts social-emotional development, in particular for children with hearing loss. Participants will be provided with resources and strategies for the intentional teaching of “mental state” verbs and social emotional skills.
This presentation will discuss areas of development that should be assessed in a child following cochlear implantation. It will outline a variety of evaluation tools that may be used to monitor acquisition of skills. It will then describe what scores are obtained and what they mean. Delay versus disorder of speech and/or language will be defined and some common concomitant disorders will be described along with steps to use in a differential diagnosis.
