This journal self-study focuses on several aspects of patient care and management for practitioners who serve children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The articles, originally published in a 2014 issue of Perspectives on Hearing and Hearing Disorders in Childhood, discuss the unique needs of children with mild, minimal, and/or unilateral hearing loss; the effects of fatigue on children with hearing loss; and the importance of monitoring speech-language performance and progress as well as hearing aid use in this population.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • delineate strategies to reduce fatigue in children with hearing loss
  • describe classroom modifications for improving the signal-to-noise ratio in classrooms
  • identify potential effects of minimal/mild hearing loss on speech perception, speech-language development, academic success, and psychosocial well-being
  • describe amplification options and limitations for children with unilateral hearing loss
  • discuss the need for collaboration between parents and professionals to facilitate spoken language outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing
