On Wednesday, July 22nd, NCHAM will be hosting the webinar: “Audiology 101 – Introduction to Audiology for Non-audiologists Working in and Supporting EHDI Activities” Presented by: Terry Foust, Au.D.

This presentation will present the introductory basic audiology concepts and terminology needed to work effectively in EHDI programs, as well as for parents in understanding hearing loss and in beginning to navigate the intervention and habilitation process. Specific topics include how the different parts of the ear work, definitions and the basic principles regarding hearing loss and intervention.

Learning Objectives: 1. Identify the parts of the ear and describe how they work 2. Describe the type and degree of hearing loss 3. Describe hearing tests and intervention
