    Online

Overview

Verification of hearing aid amplification is essential to ensuring the correct prescription for each individual patient. However, in the pediatric population where self-reporting measures cannot be relied upon, further validation measures are equally important in order to confirm whether the hearing aid fitting has been successful or whether further adjustments are required. This session will explore the importance of validation and the options available for performing validation for different pediatric age ranges.

 

Learning objectives:

  • Explain the difference between hearing aid verification and validation
  • Describe the different validation measures available
  • Interpret the results of validation measures within the wider test battery
