Looking to the Future
Today, hearing health care professionals are faced with staying on top of rapid advances in hearing technology as well as changes and updates in testing equipment and techniques. Additionally, they’re working with families of children who are younger than ever, including newborns. Given the critical role of pediatric audiology in a family’s journey to achieving positive outcomes, professionals bear a great responsibility to stay on the forefront of best practices. Hearing First is now offering new learning experiences with a focus on audiology so you can take your practice, skills, and knowledge to the next level.
Learning experiences will provide current, updated information regarding several areas of clinical care, including an improved understanding of factors that impact outcomes, testing and fitting of hearing technology, and hearing assessments. Learners can expect information and discussions led by experts in the field on best practices using evidence-based models, effective and informative family counseling, how to best coordinate services with other professionals, and the impact that early and effective intervention has for brain development and Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) outcomes. Learners have the opportunity to earn Continuing Education credits from the Alexander Graham Bell Academy for Listening and Spoken Language® , American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), and American Academy of Audiology (AAA).
