15/10/2015: ECHO Initiative : Webinar on Hearing and Hearing Loss for the Layman

MIRRORED From the ECHO Initiative pages :
Jeff Hoffman and Terry Foust recently presented a webinar to introduce state Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program staff to the basics of hearing and hearing loss. The audience response was so positive that we also wanted to make the information available to early  childhood education providers and families. The content will be particularly helpful to any parent who has a child undergoing audiological assessment and to the professionals who are serving that family.  
The 70-minute webinar covers:  
  • Anatomy of the ear
  • Types of hearing loss
  • Prevalence and causes of hearing loss
  • Diagnostic tools and procedures 
  • Audiogram fundamentals
  • Hearing loss simulation
  • Treatment and intervention options
