Auditory System and Hearing Impairment - Free E-learning Course

Hi Everyone,

Today I completed a free E-Learning course, offered by the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children - Renwick Centre, which is part of the University of Newcastle.

The Course ' Auditory System Hearing and impairment' is aimed at people looking for an introduction to hearing impairment and the auditory system. I found it interesting as a teacher and as the middle aged daughter of elderly parents, adjusting to hearing loss that is the result of the normal ageing process.

The topics covered are:
  • The anatomy of the ear
  • Causes of hearing loss
  • Types and degree of hearing loss
  • Audiograms
  • Hearing aids
  • Cochlear implants
  • Tactics to help when communicating with people who have a hearing loss.
Check it out for yourself by clicking on the hyperlinks.
