Description : This workshop focuses on the nature of hearing in normal hearing individuals and what changes occur in the inner ear in the case of sensorineural hearing loss. Cochlear implant is one solution to recover hearing ability by electrical stimulation. The difference and parameters of electrical hearing is discussed as well as the electrophysiological measurements used to verify hearing levels preimplantation and post implantation.

The success of cochlear implant and the use of auditory electrical stimulation is highly dependent on the selection of candidates. The parameters that make up a good candidates are discussed in detail. These parameters include medical and audiological test results, support system in terms of social and rehabilitation and the child’s general abilities to learn.

Time : 1st Session 8:15 am till 9:45 am
Faculty : Osama Majdalawieh, PhD and Nadia Abdulhaq, PhD

Description : This workshop will focus on the differences in hearing between air conduction and bone conduction, and the effect of conductive component in hearing loss. The mechanism of bone anchored hearing solutions and how such solutions work to transmit sound to the inner ear. The acoustic features of transmitting sound through bone and considerations to be taken.

The successful candidate selection of bone anchored hearing solution is highly dependent on the audiological results and patient experience in a trial period with the Bone anchored solution. Case discussion and audiometric test analysis is key component of this session.

Description : This workshop will focus on the Auditory Verbal Therapy method in rehabilitation of young children with hearing loss. The focus of the session is to provide practical steps to the application of the AVT method in clinical practice to ensure the best outcome. Auditory Verbal Therapy is a method that focuses on family engagement in developing the child’s ability to learn spoken language at normal developmental milestones with the aim of building up the child’s auditory, language and speech skills to be able to communicate verbally and ultimately join mainstream school and be an active member of his community.
