ECHO Initiative Webinar:

Understanding Hearing Loss
in Young Children

Tuesday, October 21, 2014
2:00 p.m. Eastern

Undetected hearing loss impacts a young child’s cognitive, linguistic and social-emotional development.  To identify a child’s hearing loss, an objective hearing screening is the important first step, followed by an audiological evaluation.  But what do all of those terms (for example, sensorineural and tympanometry) mean? 

In this webinar, we will:   

  • Present important aspects of hearing and hearing loss.
  • Explain how hearing loss is assessed and diagnosed.
  • Outline the types of treatment and intervention for hearing loss.
  • Explain how audiologists monitor and manage hearing loss.

We look forward to having you join us for this important discussion.
