Diagnostic Evaluation and Educational Programing for Hearing Impaired Children.
McCoy, George F.
Various aspects of diagnostic evaluation and educational programing for hearing impaired children are described. Discussion of hearing disorders from a medical perspective covers anatomy of the ear, types and causes of hearing disorders, and medical and surgical treatment. A review of audiological assessment of hearing disorders focuses upon techniques for measuring degree of hearing. Examples of hearing tests are given, audiometry and the audiogram are explained, hearing losses are classified by degree of loss, and familiarization training in use of amplification is described. Case work services for the hearing impaired are considered in terms of delivery, coordination and integration functions, working with both parents and the child, inter-professional consultation, and placement services. Discussion of psychological evaluation touches upon psychological services in the schools, methods of evaluating the hearing impaired, and working with parents. Finally, educational programing is considered (educational classification of hearing loss, educational approaches, choice of communication methods, examples of facilities, and educational objectives).
