Clinical Diagnostic and Management of Early Signs of Hearing Loss, in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Joaquin Tomas Valderrama-Valenzuela, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37988Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will provide a comprehensive overview on hidden hearing loss—characterized by speech-in-noise hearing difficulties that occur even before audiometric thresholds are elevated. Specifically, this course will focus on the impacts of these hearing difficulties, as well as on the search for sensitive, non-invasive biomarkers appropriate for diagnostic purposes, and management interventions to effectively manage these hearing difficulties.

Outcome Assessment: Are We Measuring What We Think We Are? in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Pádraig Kitterick, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #38046Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Outcome assessments are an essential component of measuring the effectiveness of clinical care on the individual, demonstrating the impact of clinical services on a population, and evaluating whether new technologies or approaches achieve similar or better results than what is provided currently. This course will discuss approaches that have been developed to ensure that the process of choosing what to measure is centered on what is important from patient and clinical perspectives, with examples from recent work at NAL, and the challenges and pitfalls in choosing how to measure outcomes but also the benefits of doing so carefully and consistently.

Bimodal Fitting Revisited: Integrating Hearing Aid Optimization into Current Clinical Practice, in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Paola Incerti, MAudiology, AAudA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37926Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course aims to provide participants with an overview of the clinical bimodal fitting practices and the NAL procedure for fine-tuning a hearing aid for use with a cochlear implant.

Spatial Auditory Training for Aural Rehabilitation after Unilateral Hearing Loss, presented in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by William Martens, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37863Level: Intermediate1.5 Hours
After sudden unilateral hearing loss (UHL), single-sided deaf (SSD) listeners are expected gradually to adapt to their UHL through active everyday listening to sounds in the space around them; however, structured training in spatial localization of sound sources can potentially aid in aural rehabilitation for these SSD listeners. This presentation aims to reveal the advantages of such auditory training for SSD listeners (and also listeners with asymmetric hearing loss), particularly when employing a training program designed to attune them to unilateral acoustic cues that can enable them to localize speech sounds under conditions of uncertainty (via blind listening tests).

Technology Validation in Real-World Environments and Design Thinking Solutions, presented in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Jorge Mejia, PhD, Nicky Chong-White, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37146Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course discusses ecologically momentary assessment methodologies to evaluate the real-life benefit of present and emerging technologies impacting hearing health and describe the advantages and limitations of the novel methodology. The second half will introduce design thinking and how this human-centered process has been applied to create a solution to help people with hearing difficulties understand conversations better, reduce frustration, and improve communication.

Empowerment and Behavioral Insights in Client Decision Making, presented in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Simon Alperstein, MSc BE, Paola Incerti, MAudiology, AAudA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37124Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Behavioral Insights can be used to understand and support hearing health decision-making, particularly in the appointment setting. An overview of empowering the individual's first awareness of hearing loss to hearing aid fitting and then to becoming an active hearing aid user will be covered.

Novel Diagnostic and Evaluation Tools, presented in partnership with NAL
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Vicky Zhang, PhD, Joaquin Tomas Valderrama-Valenzuela, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37111Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will provide new diagnostic approaches and remediation strategies for hearing difficulties that are currently undetected. Participants will also receive a review of current tools that may be used in clinics to evaluate auditory speech discrimination skills in infants and toddlers.
