Managing Students With Auditory Neuropathy/Dys-synchrony
The program was originally aired as part of the “Audiology 2012: Success for Students With Hearing Loss” online conference (October 17–29, 2012).
Individuals with auditory neuropathy/dys-synchrony (AN/AD, ANSD) demonstrate variation in auditory and other characteristics. While speech understanding, particularly in noise, is generally affected, physiologic responses are key to appropriate identification and monitoring over time. Various mechanisms underlie AN/AD and several areas of discovery provide insight into the observed variation. The wide range of auditory capabilities found in persons with AN/AD impacts evaluation, management, and educational planning. Thus management approaches are generally individualized with consideration of individual variation and the possibility of change over time. This presentation will focus on considerations in evaluation, management, and educational planning for individuals with AN/AD with illustrations of major points through presentation of case studies.
You will be able to:
- identify and evaluate individuals with AN/AD
- apply and discuss auditory physiologic test results
- describe appropriate methods in managing AN/AD
