Audiology in the Classrooms: Getting Students Ready for “Back to School”

Our Audiology Education column gets bumped up to feature this issue and will cover some of the skills and plans needed across the grade levels for students to have their best chance for success at school.


We’re please to welcome our newest columnist, Pam Millett who will give us the latest on what educational audiology is all about and how audiologists support students with hearing loss.

Audiology in the Classroom

Dr. Connie Mayer from York University, and Dr. Sue Archbold and Brian Lamb from the Cochlear Implant International Community of Action (CIICA) share the research and advocacy work of CIICA to understand the needs of adults with cochlear implants, services that are (or more frequently, are not) available to them, their experiences and recommendations for creating an international network of cochlear implant user groups, families, and professionals.

Fallacy of “The Teacher Voice”

It’s been such a long time since I first met or heard of Todd, I actually don’t remember when it would have been. It just seems like he’s always been there as a cornerstone of the hearing aid research community. Thank you Todd for your work, for your constant encouragement and words of wisdom, for getting me out of a smoke-filled bar in Amsterdam when I was pregnant (“We gotta get you outta here!”)

A Nod to Todd

Watching Todd rise through the ranks to a tenured professor with an endowed chair has been wonderful! However, those of you who know Todd also know that he has never sought titles, recognition, or honorifics for his work – those kudos flow easily and naturally to him because of the quality of his research.

Benefits and Limitations of Cochlear Implantation for Single-Sided Deafness

Unilateral, SNHL, otherwise known as single-sided deafness, is estimated to occur in 2 – 5 per 1,000 school-age children and 0.11–0.14% of all adults. Those affected have a loss of hearing acuity on the affected side and impaired binaural hearing which negatively impacts sound source localization, understanding speech in noise (SIN) and overall quality of life (QoL).
