    New Advances in Electrophysiologic Assessments of Children

    Wednesday, March 2, 2016; 1:00 - 3:00 PM ET

    Duration: 2 hours

    Presenter: Yvonne S. Sininger PhD

    CEUs: .2

    Who Should Attend: Audiologists using Electrophsyiology Measures for Threshold Predictions

    Instructional Level: All Levels
    Program Focus:
    Knowledge and Skills

    Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

    1. Describe a chirp stimulus
    2. Describe the advantages of chirps for electrophysiology
    3. Recite the methods of response detection for ASSR
    4. Explain and contrast the principles of ABR and ASSR acquisition

    Description: The ABR and ASSR used with frequency-specific stimuli are the clinical standard for prediction of hearing thresholds in infants and toddlers and are critical for proper identification of hearing loss in those who fail newborn hearing screening.The eAudiology Web seminar will begin with a review of cochlear mechanics and considerations in choosing appropriate stimuli for assessments.The concept of the Chirp will be discussed as well as the clinical advantages of such stimuli.Another concept that will be emphasized is response detection routines and online measures of noise and response that are being applied to ABR and ASSR for clinical assessments.The seminar will focus on improvement of accuracy and reduction in assessment time for infant and toddler evaluations.

  • Population Outcomes of Children with Hearing Loss: Early Treatment Is Crucial but Not Sufficient - Marion Downs Lecture in Pediatric Audiology

    Includes a Live Event on 04/15/2016 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Presented by Ching YC Teresa, PhD

    Population Outcomes of Children with Hearing Loss: Early Treatment Is Crucial but Not Sufficient - Marion Downs Lecture in Pediatric Audiology

    Will be recorded Friday, April 15, 2016; 1:00 - 2:30 PM ET
    Live from AudiologyNOW! 2016 in Phoenix

    The registration for this eAudiology Web seminar is free through funding by the American Academy of Audiology Foundation with a grant from the Oticon Foundation

    Duration: 90 minutes

    Presenter: Ching YC Teresa, PhD

    CEUs: .15

    Who Should Attend: Pediatric audiologists and others who frequently treat and diagnosis pediatric patients

    Instructional Level: Intermediate
    Program Focus:
    Knowledge

    Leaner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

    1. Describe population outcomes (language, speech, psychosocial skills) of children with congenital hearing loss
    2. Identify factors that influence outcomes of children with hearing loss who use hearing aids or cochlear implants
    3. Explain management strategies for optimizing outcomes of children with hearing loss and ANSD by using parental reports and cortical auditory evoked potential measurements

    Description: Drawing on a population-based study of children with hearing loss diagnosed through either universal newborn hearing screening or standard care but who received the same post-diagnostic services in Australia, the urgency for early amplification/ cochlear implantation is clearly demonstrated. The study also revealed specific deficits in pre-reading skills and psycho-social skills. The findings shaped improvements in clinical management of children, including vigilant monitoring with targeted assessments and intervention to enable children to reap the full benefits of early intervention.

    Registration allows access to the live and/or the on-demand session of this Web seminar

    TeresaC.jpgTeresa YC Ching, PhD is head of Rehabilitation Procedures research at the National Acoustic Laboratories, Australia. Her current research focuses on investigating efficacy of early intervention for populations of children with bilateral hearing loss or unilateral hearing loss, identifying factors affecting outcomes, evaluation of sound detection and discrimination in infants with hearing loss or auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder using cortical auditory evoked potential (CAEP) measurements and parental reports, and prescription of hearing aids and electric-acoustic stimulation (bimodal fitting) for children and adults. Teresa has published more than 120 peer-reviewed manuscripts. Key contributions from her original research findings include a validated test of functional performance; evidence-based protocols for bimodal fitting, pediatric referral for cochlear-implant-candidacy, CAEP and functional assessments; and methods for predicting language outcomes of infants with hearing loss. She is regularly invited to deliver key note presentations at international conferences. She serves on the editorial boards of three international journals.

  • Topics in Tinnitus: Tinnitus: Causes, Characteristics, and Biologic Bases (.3 CEUs; ABA Certificants: Tier 1)

    Presented by Jennifer Melcher, PhD

    Topics in Tinnitus: Tinnitus: Causes, Characteristics, and Biologic Bases

    Friday, April 15, 2016; 6:00 – 9:00 PM ET
    Live from AudiologyNOW! 2016 in Phoenix, AZ

    The registration for this eAudiology Web seminar is free through funding by the American Academy of Audiology Foundation with a grant from Widex.

    Duration: Three hours

    Presenter: Jennifer Melcher, PhD

    CEUs: .3
    ABA Certificants Tier 1

    Instructional Level: Intermediate
    Program Focus:
    Knowledge

    Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

    1. Describe major forms of trauma (acoustic and otherwise) leading to tinnitus, perceptual and psychological aspects of tinnitus, and methods of assessment
    2. Discern important aspects of brain imaging and other physiological studies of tinnitus
    3. Describe brain centers for which there is evidence of involvement in tinnitus, as well as neural mechanisms proposed to underlie tinnitus

    Description: This eAudiology Web seminar will focus on the clinical problem of tinnitus. While sometimes viewed as an “ear problem", the brain – auditory and non-auditory - plays an important role in the development of tinnitus, as well as the intolerance of sound that can occur with it (hyperacusis). Causes and characteristics of tinnitus, as well as brain imaging and EEG investigations into the biologic bases of tinnitus will be reviewed during this session. Drawing from both human and animal data, potential physiological substrates for multiple facets of the tinnitus condition will be discussed.
