CPD CYCLE 1 JULY 2017 TO 30 JUNE 2018 - 1 POINT  (Category 1)

Human beings are profoundly social animals and social behavior unique to humans typically pivots on the ability to use language to communicate. One important type of information carried in a speech signal is the talker’s emotional state. To date, little is known of how hearing loss and use of hearing instruments influences behaviour in environments that contain vocal emotion. This presentation will share research from our group that investigates the perceptual (e.g., word-recognition and emotion-identification performance), physiological, and socioemotional consequences of listening to speech that contains vocal emotion for individuals with hearing loss in aided and unaided listening situations.

Hearing well at school for learning and social interaction is important to all children. Distance, background noise and reverberation are especially challenging for students with a hearing loss. A modern classroom is made up of many elements which create a dynamic learning environment. Remote microphone technologies have shown to improve the signal-to-noise (SNR) for children with hearing loss. The Phonak Roger for Education portfolio has changed the remote wireless microphone space and brought many advantages for paediatric users; giving kids the full opportunity to not only learn but also to engage! This presentation will introduce participants to these products and will provide a discussion on how this portfolio of microphones have been designed with today’s modern classrooms in mind.
