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.

Learning Outcomes

  2. After this course, participants will be able to identify four important unmet needs of people with normal audiograms and speech-in-noise hearing difficulties.
  3. After this course, participants will be able to describe auditory perception development in children and explain the purpose and importance of speech discrimination testing.
