State of Science Meeting on Hearing Enhancement

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a two-day State of the Science Conference on Hearing Enhancement to be held at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, in Wilmington, Delaware, October 4-5, 2011. The conference is hosted by Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Hearing Enhancement (RERC-HE) in conjunction with the Nemours Center for Pediatric Auditory and Speech Sciences (CPASS), Gallaudet University, and George Washington University. This year’s focus will be on
"Assessment/Diagnosis, Hearing Technologies, Multilingual Factors and Rehabilitation Outcomes." A satellite workshop on Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder on October 3, 2011, will precede the conference with the aim of training professionals in the diagnosis and management of Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder.

In keeping with our close ties between the clinic and laboratory, this year’s conference topic is intended to provide a forum for researchers and clinicians to present and discuss important issues related to hearing assessment and rehabilitation with a special emphasis on pediatric populations. The goal of this State of the Science Conference is to present an overview of current practice and lay out future research directions for hearing rehabilitation.
