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
- Hearing aids
- Cochlear implants
- Tactics to help when communicating with people who have a hearing loss.
