1. Factorial Validity and Measurement Invariance of the Test of Preschool Early Literacy-Phonological Awareness Test Among Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children and Hearing Children. (PubMed)

Factorial Validity and Measurement Invariance of the Test of Preschool Early Literacy-Phonological Awareness Test Among Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children and Hearing Children. Emerging evidence suggests that early phonological awareness in deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children with functional hearing is significantly related to their reading acquisition, and the assessment of phonological awareness can play a critical role in preventing reading difficulties. Validation of the scores obtained (...) from standardized assessments when used with DHH students is crucial to support the assessments' intended interpretations and implications of test scores. Using archival data sets, the aim of this study was twofold: (a) to establish the factorial validity of the item scores on the Test of Preschool Early Literacy-Phonological Awareness (TOPEL-PA) for DHH children with functional hearing and hearing children and (b) to test measurement invariance across these groups. Our archival data sets included

2. Jean Straus: Could birdsong help boost engagement with hearing tests?

Jean Straus: Could birdsong help boost engagement with hearing tests? Jean Straus: Could birdsong help boost engagement with hearing tests? - The BMJ ---> Jean Straus describes a co-produced project to help raise awareness of hearing loss “Good sensory health provides the fuel for cognition. It keeps us fully present and able to participate fully in our lives and communities.” [1] This quote is so obviously true as to almost be self-evident. And yet having good sensory health, or good hearing (...) earphones over our ears, where we are made to listen to mechanical beeps and push on a button. It can feel harsh, impersonal, and stressful, because our natural inclination is to want to pass a test. We want to hear those beeps. Then when we don’t, somehow we feel like failures. Hearing birdsong feels humane. It acknowledges we have hearing preferences. It is gentle. Yes, it can still be stressful to discover we’re not hearing the birdsong, but at least it’s a sound we want to hear. I hope

4. Localization and Spatial Discrimination in Children and Adolescents with Moderate Sensorineural Hearing Loss Tested without Their Hearing Aids. (PubMed)

Localization and Spatial Discrimination in Children and Adolescents with Moderate Sensorineural Hearing Loss Tested without Their Hearing Aids. The present study investigated two measures of spatial acoustic perception in children and adolescents with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) tested without their hearing aids and compared it to age-matched controls. Auditory localization was quantified by means of a sound source identification task and auditory spatial discrimination acuity (...) by measuring minimum audible angles (MAA). Both low- and high-frequency noise bursts were employed in the tests to separately address spatial auditory processing based on interaural time and intensity differences. In SNHL children, localization (hit accuracy) was significantly reduced compared to normal-hearing children and intraindividual variability (dispersion) considerably increased. Given the respective impairments, the performance based on interaural time differences (low frequencies) was still

10. In situ Hearing Tests for the Purpose of a Self-Fit Hearing Aid. (PubMed)

In situ Hearing Tests for the Purpose of a Self-Fit Hearing Aid. This study investigated the potential and limitations of a self-fit hearing aid. This can be used in the "developing" world or in countries with large distances between the hearing-impaired subjects and the professional. It contains an on-board tone generator for in situ user-controlled, automated audiometry, and other tests for hearing aid fitting. Twenty subjects with mild hearing losses were involved. In situ audiometry showed (...) a test-retest reliability (SD <3.7 dB) that compared well with the precision of diagnostic audiometry using headphones. There was good correspondence (SD <5.2 dB) with traditional pure-tone audiometry. In situ loudness scaling yielded important information about suprathreshold perception, which will have an added value for the selection of compression and the selection of maximum power output to be allowed in hearing aids.© 2017 S.

12. Hearing aids make communication easier for people with mild hearing loss

, which can reduce their employment and education prospects. Communication difficulties caused by hearing loss can also leave people socially isolated as they struggle to listen and take part in conversations. This all means that hearing loss that is not identified and managed properly can have a negative impact on people’s quality of life. Hearing loss is measured on a sliding scale using tests of the softest sounds that are audible. It is classified from mild to profound, the most severe. It can (...) be difficult to notice gradual change, and often people seek help only when their hearing deteriorates beyond a mild loss. Until now there has not been much high-quality evidence to test the assumption that hearing aids would help people with the wider impacts of hearing loss. This review looked at the improvements in emotional and social quality of life related to giving people with mild to moderate hearing loss hearing aids. What did this study do? This systematic review included five randomised

14. Subclinical conductive hearing loss significantly reduces otoacoustic emission amplitude: Implications for test performance. (PubMed)

Subclinical conductive hearing loss significantly reduces otoacoustic emission amplitude: Implications for test performance. Distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) are a time-efficient, non-invasive means of assessing the integrity of active inner ear mechanics. Unfortunately, the presence of even relatively minor conductive hearing loss (CHL) has been suggested to reduce the clinical utility of DPOAEs significantly. The primary aims of this study were to systematically evaluate (...) the impact of CHL on DPOAE amplitude and to determine if ear-specific primary tone level manipulations can be used to mitigate CHL impact and recover DPOAE measurability.For 30 young adults (57 ears) with normal hearing, DPOAEs were obtained for f2 = 1-6 kHz. Observed DPOAE amplitudes were used to generate ear- and frequency-specific models with the primary tone levels, L1 and L2, as inputs and predicted DPOAE amplitude, LDP, as output. These models were then used to simulate the effect of CHL (0-15 dB

Genetic testing for congenital non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Approximately 60% of congenital pediatric hearing loss is of genetic etiology. To evaluate non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss (NSSNHL), guidelines emphasize the use of comprehensive genetic testing (CGT) with next generation sequencing (NGS), yet these tests have limited accessibility, and potential CGT results may not be well understood. Thus, our objective was to analyze genetic testing practices and results (...) for pediatric patients with NSSNHL.This was a retrospective chart review of pediatric patients (<18 years) diagnosed with NSSNHL from 2014 to 2017 at a tertiary pediatric hospital. Demographics, clinical data, CGT results, genetic testing practices and referral patterns were recorded and descriptively analyzed. Logistic regression models identified patient characteristics associated with pathogenic variants (PV) and variants of unknown significance (VOUS).430 patients with congenital NSSNHL were included
