Hearing loss is the third most chronic condition reported by the elderly. Due to detrimental effects of hearing loss and age on communication, elderly individuals with hearing loss may be compromised socially or emotionally. Hearing loss presents communication challenges across many listening conditions. This session will discuss the incidence and causes of adult onset hearing loss and the challenges and remedies that are available to address the communication and psychosocial difficulties that impact the person with hearing loss and their loved ones. Strategies will be discussed on how to adapt different listening situations to provide effective communication and equipment will be shown that could assist in alleviating obstacles when listening in various listening communication settings.
After completing this course, participants will be able to describe the challenges that a hearing impaired adult and his/her family will encounter, identify remedies that are available to address the communicative and psychological difficulties that impact the person with hearing loss and identify at least two assistive listening devices that can be used in conjunction with hearing aid technology to a hearing impaired adult.
