Pediatric Audiology: The Basics

Audience: Teachers of the deaf, special education teachers, general education teachers, itinerants, speech-language pathologists, early intervention providers, parents and families of children with hearing loss

Understanding the needs of a student with hearing loss starts with a basic knowledge of what he can and can’t hear. This half-hour course is a stand-alone audiology primer, essential for teachers, pediatric speech-language pathologists and others who work on the educational team of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Our CID audiologist covers how the ear works, how to read an audiogram, the kinds of testing used to measure hearing levels with children at different ages, hearing devices and more.

Start every member of a child’s team on the same page! This is a great video to quickly introduce busy parents of newly diagnosed children to the new world of audiograms, testing, hearing devices, etc. They can watch it free from anywhere.
