Hyperacusis: Underlying Pathologies and Current State of Our Knowledge (O.1 CEUs)

May 8, 2018, 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm Eastern

Presenter: Ali A. Danesh, PhD, Board Certified in Audiology

CEUs: 0.1

Duration: 1 hour

Instructional Level: Intermediate

Program Focus: Knowledge

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

  1. Differentiate different types of sound sensitivity disorders
  2. Acknowledge a variety of underlying reasons for hyperacusis
  3. Recommend management strategies for such disorders

Description: Sound tolerance disorders may result in sensitivity to loudness and/or content of the acoustic stimuli and may be associated with fear and negative emotional reaction. Hyperacusis is a complex and multifaceted condition that can have a detrimental effect on an individual’s quality of life. The varied presentations and co-occurring conditions of hyperacusis often present clinicians with confusing and challenging cases. The purpose of this presentation is to help audiologists more effectively identify the different manifestations of hyperacusis, understand underlying neural correlates of its symptoms, and promote efficacious treatment strategies to help patients cope with this complicated condition.
