Welcome to the summer issue of the newsletter for Special Interest Division 9. Diane Sabo, one of our Steering Committee members, is our guest editor with another focus on an educational area; this time soundfield amplification.
Although it is summer, it is not too early to be thinking about the ASHA Convention in Boston this November. Our division is sponsoring three sessions this year, all of which should be of interest to audiologists and speech-language pathologists working with children who have hearing loss. Our Short Course, by David Luterman, is entitled “Counseling Persons with Communicative Disorders and Their Families.” The workshop will consist of lecture, demonstration and discussion. It is designed to increase the professional’s sensitivity to client affect and to increase skills and confidence of the professional in working with clients and their families. Our first miniseminar is entitled “Issues in Pediatric Amplification: Case Studies.” Experienced professionals will discuss a variety of current amplification options and techniques for appropriate evaluation, fitting of amplification, and follow-up for children. Areas to be discussed include FM systems as primary amplification, CIC hearing aids, programmable/digital hearing aids, cochlear implants, and otoacoustic emissions. Our second miniseminar, which is also sponsored by one of the Convention subcommittees, is entitled “But Where is the Aided Audiogram?: Amplification for Children in the 1990s.” This course is designed for individuals who work with children with hearing loss. Emphasis willbe given to describing new procedures for fitting children and to new approaches for communicating amplification-related information to health care/educational professionals and families. Each of these courses was selected for submission based on requests from our affiliates. We hope that you are able to attend the Convention and that you find these and many other sessions educational.
