Educational Audiology Module Aims 2022-23
Available as Stand-alone options – 15 credits each
7FHE1100 | Anatomy and Physiology | Semester A
Develop a critical awareness of current research and materials in regards to anatomy, physiology and related aetiologies/pathologies of the ear. Consider how this impacts a child or young person who is deaf and how it applies to the role of educational audiologist in a multidisciplinary team.
7FHE1101 | Speech Acoustics | Semester A
Analyse acoustic properties of speech in children, including those who are deaf, and apply the analysis to hearing aid and auditory implant provision and review.
7FHE1102 | Clinical Audiology | Semester B
Work effectively to implement and evaluate performance related to basic audiological assessment and habilitation, related to appropriate management plans. Effectively establish liaisons for provision of information and advice to families and other professionals.
7FHE1103 | Educational Audiology in Practice | Semester B
Critically evaluate Educational Audiology advice to services (e.g. acoustic properties of classrooms) in liaison with families and the multidisciplinary team and make recommendations for improvement. Provide a critically reflective audiological and habilitation service to children and young people who are deaf and their families using methods in line with current research and protocols.
Educational Audiology Module Aims 2023-24
Available as Stand-alone options – 15 cr each
7FHE1104 | Developing Communication, Speech & Language | Semester A
Develop a critical awareness of current research and materials on child communication development and of how this is used by an educational audiologist as part of a multidisciplinary team.
Evaluate and provide information and advice to families in effective liaison with Audiology Services and other multi-disciplinary teams.
7FHE1105 | Psychoacoustics | Semester A
Review the positions of key literature in psychoacoustics and relate arguments to this proposing alternatives, combinations or solutions.
Evaluate current research on the developmental nature of auditory processing and relate a child’s behaviour to this.
Link perceptual outcomes with different types of hearing loss.
7FHE1106 | Whole Case Management | Semester B
Develop theory, methods and practice related to appropriate management plans for habilitation taking into account:
- Audiological assessment and habilitation
- needs of the child and family
- developmental factors including communication
- aetioloical/medical factors
- multidisciplinary working
- And critical evaluation of effectiveness
7FHE1107 | Family Friendly Multidisciplinary Working | Semester B
Provide a critically reflective audiological and habilitation service to children and young people who are deaf and their families using methods in line with current research and protocols. Critically evaluate the role of the educational audiologist within the multidisciplinary team and refine their liaison skills with other professionals.
