It is estimated that about 10% of adults with hearing loss are in the severe to profound range. Although cochlear implant candidacy requirements have recently expanded, most of the individuals with severe and profound hearing loss still depend on traditional hearing aids for day-to-day communication. This course will examine non-implantable interventions for adults with severe-profound hearing loss.
