Abstract

Western Washington University Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders Douglas Sladen presents “Adult Onset Hearing Loss: Current Trends and Emerging Technologies” as part of the WWU College of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean’s Lecture Series. Sladen will review the underlying causes of age-related hearing loss, sharing new findings from the United States and worldwide that demonstrate the devastating effects of hearing loss. He will also share exciting data that are important for managing cases of severe hearing loss. Sladen has worked as a clinician, researcher and professor in audiology for the past 23 years. His research is centered on the speech perception abilities of children and adults with cochlear implants; an auditory prosthetic used to manage severe hearing loss. Specifically, Sladen’s work examines outcomes following cochlear implantation and methods that can be used to improve overall hearing performance.
