I hope that those of you who attended the annual convention in Atlanta had the opportunity to attend some of the aural rehabilitation (AR) sessions. Over the past few years, I have always been impressed by the quality of the AR presentations (both the Short Courses and mini seminars) at the convention. Another benefit for audiologists (and AR buffs) is that, because the size of the convention is not too overwhelming, there is always the possibility to have direct access to the presenters and other attendees who share our passion for AR.
In this column, I would like to invite Special Interest Group (SIG) 7 members to become more involved in the activities of our SIG. Involvement can take different forms. It could be as simple as tracking down another SIG 7 member to ask a question about your practice or seek advice about a client with an intriguing profile. One available option is to post a message on SIG 7’s ASHA Community. This can be an efficient way to receive rapid feedback on an issue of concern. This fall, Sarah Hargus Ferguson (from Salt lake City, UT) sought advice on the pros and cons of inviting patient panels to a graduate AR course. Within a few days, several SIG 7 members had provided input on this issue. Other SIG 7 members could use the same strategies to address clinical questions. What is the evidence in favor of binaural implants in children with profound hearing loss? Are there instances when one hearing aid is better than binaural amplification for older adults? Where is the best place to purchase a portable loop system? I am sure that several SIG 7 members would participate in a discussion and provide their input on a pertinent issue related to AR. Try it out!
