Hearing Disorders and Measurement

In this course, students will review the anatomy of the auditory and vestibular systems and explore peripheral and central disorders which can affect hearing and balance.  Students will classify disorders of hearing by etiology, location within the auditory systems, and effect on communication.  Students will investigate the current assessments available to evaluate hearing and balance and the results provided by the assessments. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to (1) identify disorders of the auditory and vestibular systems and classify them by etiology; (2) describe the evaluations available to assess hearing and balance disorders and the results obtained; (3) describe the effects of specific disorders on communication.

*This course will satisfy the EDSL 201 (formerly titled EDSL 381) prerequisite for the M.A. Education option in Communicative Sciences and Disorders degree program.
