The Use of Hearing Aids in Managing Chronic Bothersome Subjective Tinnitus
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Brian J. Fligor, PhD, PASC
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39220Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Sound enhancement is a cornerstone of the clinical management of chronic bothersome subjective tinnitus. This course reviews the subtle but effective adjustments to hearing aid programming when hearing aids are fitted for the purpose of managing tinnitus symptoms, including masking sounds and soft-sound enhancement.

A Clinician’s Primer on How and Why to Perform the ‘ANSI Test’
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Joshua M. Alexander, PhD, CCC-A
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39223Level: Intermediate1.5 Hours
In anticipation of the 2024 revision of ANSI S3.22, “Specification of Hearing Aid Characteristics,” this presentation will review the significant updates in the latest version of this seminal standard. The primary focus will be a pragmatic approach to conducting the ‘ANSI Test’ effectively and efficiently for each leading hearing aid manufacturer.

Mild TBI - The Not So Mild Effects
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Liz Fuemmeler, AuD, FAAA, CCC-A, Julie Shoemake, MS, CCC-SLP, CBIS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #42948Level: Intermediate1.5 Hours
An overview of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI)/concussion and its pathophysiology, with particular emphasis on diagnostic and rehabilitation tools utilized by SLPs and audiologists, is provided in this course. Impacts of mTBI on hearing, cognition, vision and the vestibular system, assessments performed by the two disciplines post-concussion, and treatments for cognition (including auditory processing disorder) are described.

Foundations of Hearing Loss and Cognition
Phonak CEU courses
Presented by Brandy Pouliot, AuD
Recorded WebinarLive WebinarMon, Apr 1, 2024 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #39028Level: Introductory1 Hour
Cognition as it relates to hearing loss has been an important topic of discussion for the last decade. In this course, hearing care providers will learn about the foundations of cognition and hearing loss, and how to proactively address hearing loss and promote healthy living as a way to possibly mitigate cognitive decline and positively impact the overall well-being of their clients.

20Q: Changes to Auditory Processing and Cognition During Normal Aging – Should it Affect Hearing Aid Programming? Part 2 – Programming Hearing Aids for Older Adults
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Richard Windle, PhD, MSc, CS
Text/Transcript
Course: #39168Level: Advanced2.5 Hours
Part 1 discussed how a decline in some elements of cognition and auditory processing alters speech perception during normal aging. This course considers how hearing aids may help or hinder speech perception for older adults. The author discusses how different hearing aid settings can affect the speech signal and consider practical ways we can use this in the clinic to offer the optimum fitting for an individual, in particular how we should set up hearing aid compression.

Helping Families Obtain Full Access to Information for Their Deaf Child’s Language Acquisition
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Sheri Farinha, MA, Julie Rems Smario, EdD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39259Level: Introductory1 Hour
As Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Coordinators, we witness many families struggling to obtain accurate information on supporting their Deaf child’s language development. Language development is not about what the Deaf child can or cannot hear. This course discusses how to help families and parents navigate and gain access to information for their Deaf children.

Engaging Families in Continuing to Improve EHDI Programs, in partnership with American Cochlear Implant Alliance
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Karl R. White, PhD
Live WebinarWed, Apr 24, 2024 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #39458Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Permanent hearing loss affects 2-3 per 1,000 newborns. When not identified early in life, children who are deaf or hard of hearing lag behind their peers in language, social, and cognitive development, fail more frequently in school, and have difficulty being successfully employed. Family engagement has been critical in the development of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) that have made it possible for most children who are deaf or hard of hearing to develop similarly to their peers with typical hearing. However, a number of challenges and opportunities for improvement remain. This presentation summarizes the history of newborn hearing screening, describes the current status, and discusses some of the important challenges and emerging issues that could be addressed to further improve early identification of childhood hearing loss. Lessons learned over the past decades, recent advances based on research and policy initiatives, and the crucial role of families will be used to highlight how various stakeholders (e.g., health care providers, public health officials, parents, and educators) can continue to improve outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Comparing Cochlear’s Osia 2 to other Bone Anchored Hearing Devices, presented in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Melanie Lutz, AuD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39240Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course reviews conductive hearing loss amplification needs and management options. We explore the offerings of the Cochlear Osia 2 device and compare to other bone anchored hearing devices.

20Q: Changes to Auditory Processing and Cognition During Normal Aging – Should it Affect Hearing Aid Programming? Part 1 – Changes Associated with Normal Aging
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Richard Windle, PhD, MSc, CS
Text/Transcript
Course: #39167Level: Advanced2.5 Hours
Many aspects of cognition and auditory processing decline with normal aging, and this makes it difficult to hear in challenging situations, even without the additional problems caused by peripheral hearing loss. There is a huge amount of literature about hearing and aging. This course summarizes relevant findings and discusses the processes of normal aging that particularly affect speech perception.

Noise-Induced Hearing Disorders: Hidden and Not-So-Hidden Injuries, in partnership with American Auditory Society
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Colleen Le Prell, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39210Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course reviews patterns of noise-induced cell death, changes in sound evoked hair cell and neuron response, and functional deficits, including both threshold shift and deficits “beyond the audiogram.” As investigational inner ear medicines enter clinical testing for possible prevention of cochlear injury or cochlear regeneration indications, reliable diagnostic metrics for specific cell and nerve injuries are becoming increasingly important.
