Craig A young business man has a mild hearing loss and only finds out when he visits his ENT and has a hearing test because of ringing in his ears. He hasnt notices any difference and is very active and social. Does he have an impairment? Does he have a disability? Does he have a hearing handicap?
Dixie An older woman visits your clinic because she is having trouble hearing in a crowd. Her audiogram shows a mild-to-moderate snhl au. Her family has requested she get her hearing checked. She thinks she hears fine unless shes in a crowd. If people would speak up and quit mumbling, she could hear them. She stays busy and is very social. Does she have an impairment? Does she have a disability? Does she have a hearing handicap?
Silvestre Silvestre has a moderate-to-sever snhl au. He is having trouble hearing his family and the TV has to be turned up so loud, no one wants to sit with him. He gets together with his family less and less because trying to communicate is so difficult. Does he have an impairment? Does he have a disability? Does he have a hearing handicap?
Handicap & Lifestyle Aural rehabilitation goals will be directly affected by the communication handicap and the lifestyle. Two people with the exact same hearing loss will function very differently depending on their lifestyle. How do you find out this information?

ASHA Appendix 1-1 Basic areas of knowledge and skills by audiologists Basic areas of knowledge and skills by SLPs
Conversation Why do we have them? What are some of the rules?
Rules of Conversation Tacitly agree to share one anothers interest Ensure that no single person does all of the talking Participate in choosing what to talk about, and participate in developing the topic Take turns in an orderly fashion Try to be relevant to the topic of conversation Provide enough information to convey a message without being verbose. Pragmatics!
What can happen with someone with a HL? Disrupted taking of turns Modified speaking style Inappropriate topic shifts Superficial content Frequent clarification Violation of implicit social rules
Classes of communication strategies Facilitative strategies (talker) Instructing the talker and structuring the listening environment to enhance the listeners performance Receptive repair strategy (listener) A tactic used by an individual when he or she has not understood a message Communication breakdown (talker & listener) When one communication partner does not recognize anothers message
Factors that influence reception (talker) Talker Message Environment
Facilitate (listener) Speech recognition skills Adaptive - implement relaxation techniques Attending - pays attention to cues for inferring Anticipatory - prepares Communication environment Constructive - structures the environment Communication partner Instructional - asking Message Message tailoring - encourage control of topic Maladaptive strategies
Repair Strategies When a breakdown in communication happens, listeners can request information by using a receptive repair strategy Flow chart pg 54
Stages of repairing communication breakdown Detect Choose a course of action Implement
Repair Strategy or Bluff? Specific Repair Strategies Repeat (most common repair strategy) Rephrase Elaborate Simplify Inidcate topic of conversation Write Fingerspell Nonspecific repair strategies (What? Huh? Pardon?) Extended repair - use several together Expressive repair strategies Bluff - consequences?
