The Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale: Subjective Fatigue in Pediatric Hearing Loss & in Additional Disabilities
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Recent studies have implicated fatigue as an important consequence of listening effort,
but the impact of fatigue on children is poorly understood. One problem is the lack of a
measure of listening-related fatigue. In this presentation, the presenters (1) introduce the
construct of listening-related fatigue, and (2) describe the development and validation of
the Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale designed to quantify listening-related fatigue.
This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention.
You will be able to:
- describe the key components of subjective fatigue
- explain cognitive fatigue in pediatric hearing loss and in children with additional
- discuss the development of the Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale and the psychometrics
