  1. Hearing Impairment Annika Bowers, M.S., CF-SLP WT Moore Elementary School

  2. How we hear…

  3. Types of Hearing Loss • Types of Hearing Loss: • Conductive- Sound is not sent properly through the outer and middle ear • Examples: bones not vibrating properly, middle ear fluid, tumor in middle ear, malformation of ear and/or hole in the eardrum • Hearing aids are worn to amplify sounds • Sensorineural- Damage to the inner ear (cochlea) or the nerve pathways from the brain to the inner ear. • Examples: genetic hearing loss, head trauma, aging, drugs toxic to the ear, malformation of cochlea and/or loud noise • Cochlear implants are worn to replicate sounds • Mixed- A combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss • Examples: a tumor in middle ear and noise induced hearing loss, hole in ear drum and malformation of cochlea, etc. • Cochlear implants and hearing aids worn

  4. Degree of Hearing Loss • Normal • Mild • Moderate • Moderately-Severe • Severe • Profound

  7. Cochlear Implants vs. Hearing Aids • Cochlear Implant- a small, complex electronic device that can help to provide a sense of sound (replicates hairs in cochlea) to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard-of-hearing. • Used when a person has a sensorineural or mixed hearing loss • Hearing Aid- a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear that makes some sounds louder. • Used when a person is undergoing a trial period before cochlear implants • Used when a person has conductive or mixed hearing loss

  10. Classroom Management of Hearing Loss • Carpet floors to absorb sound • Use FM system to amplify the speaker’s voice • Place blinds or shades over windows to absorb sound and reduce sound from outside • Cork, flannel or felt boards on walls to absorb sound • Partially block noise coming from bathroom, computer, etc. by placing a bookshelf or fabric in front of them

  11. Ling-6 Sound Check • A quick test to see if haring devices are on and are working properly • Represent 6 sounds across the “speech banana” • Do every morning! • How to do it: • Sit close to the student’s hearing device • Cover your mouth and say the sounds and have child repeat after you: • “m” as in “mommy” • “ah” as in “block” • “ee” as in “seek” • “oo” as in “boo” • “sh” as in “wish” • “s” as in “sound” • Add in some silence in between • Change up the order ever time
