2021 CHHA National Educational Conference

Virtual

On June 3, learn about ‘Music & Hearing Aids’ with Dr. Marshall Chasin.
Given the limitations of many modern digital hearing aids to handle the more intense inputs that are characteristic of many forms of music, there are a number of clinical strategies and newer hearing aid technologies that can be useful. Clinical strategies consist of those approaches that can be remediated in a clinical setting while technological strategies are hard wired into the hearing aid circuitry. This session lead by Dr. Marshall Chasin will review a number of different approaches, including a discussion of the benefits of “post-16 bit” technology for music and hearing aids.  Audio files will be used to demonstrate the benefit of these approaches.

Also on June 3, join Penn State University Professor Saeed Abdullah & Johnna Blair for an in-depth look at  ‘How to make smart voice assistants (like Siri and Amazon Alexa) more Accessible to Hearing Needs.’ Professor Saeed Abdullah & Johnna Blair will educate attendees on how to make smart voice assistants (like Siri and Amazon Alexa) more accessible to hearing needs.  As well, they will highlight some of the next steps for designing voice-interaction systems that are more accessible to users who are hard of hearing and improving overall inclusivity in design.

2018 AAMHL Web Conference

Virtual

Coping with Hearing Loss: Strategies for Musical People

Date: November 17, 2018, 2:00-3:30 pm EST

Sponsored by: StenoKnight CART Services

Hearing loss is a debilitating condition that creates stigma and immense stress, especially if you are a professional or even an amateur musician. In our 2018 web conference, we take a look at ways of developing coping strategies for the emotional journey of living with hearing loss and the many stresses it brings. AAMHL is extremely pleased to have two presenters with strong musical backgrounds share their stories and their strategies.

Pianist Pat Dobbs will share her own story of losing her hearing after a very musical upbringing, and how she eventually developed the Hearing Loss Evolution and its Nine Guiding Principles as a way of assisting others on their hearing loss journey.

As she began losing her hearing, string bassist Gaelen McCormick was often overwhelmed and resentful of what was happening to her. But she had been taking classes in meditation and her instructors patiently supported her transformation as a late-deafened adult who happens to be a musician. She learned to use the simple actions of watching and counting breaths to center herself and regain control. Her presentation will offer some very basic elements of mindfulness and practical ways to apply them in everyday life.

This event will have real-time captioning and the registration fee is $25 per person USD. It officially begins at 1 and ends at 2:30, but the Zoom conference link will have starting and ending times with a 30-minute window to give attendees time to get used to the software interface and additional time for post-conference discussion.

CAA Webinar: Motivation, Cognition and Listening Effort

Virtual

Join us on Thursday June 28, 2018 as Professor Mary Rudner presents Motivation, Cognition and Listening Effort.

Hard of hearing people often find that listening is effortful. This makes listening effort an important phenomenon to study. However, there has been a lack of consensus among the research community concerning both the definition of listening effort and how to measure it. The Framework for Understanding Effortful Listening (FUEL, Pichora Fuller et al., 2016) brings together tools and concepts to form a basis for future work on understanding listening effort. It also provides a scientific definition of listening effort: the deliberate allocation of mental resources to overcome obstacles in goal pursuit when carrying out a listening task. Fundamental to the FUEL is Kahneman’s (1973) model of attention and effort, which describes how available cognitive resources are allocated to on-going tasks. This allocation process can also be understood in terms of working memory. The decision to allocate cognitive resources to a listening task often depends on motivation and the pleasure of hearing significant sounds.

In this CAA webinar, I will describe the FUEL and how it can be used as a tool for understanding effortful listening. I will also provide examples of the way in which the FUEL is driving current research.

Learning points:
1. The role of cognition in listening
2. Understanding the Framework for Understanding Effortful Listening (FUEL)
3. Methods of measuring listening effort

Speaker: Mary Rudner, Professor in Disability Research, Linnaeus Centre HEAD, Department of Behavioural Sciences and Learning, Linköping University, Sweden.

Mary Rudner is Professor of Disability Research specializing in Cognitive Hearing Science at Linköping University, Sweden and guest professor at Lund University, Sweden. At Linköping University, she is Deputy Research Manager at the Linnaeus Centre HEAD, for research on HEaring And Deafness, and Director of Studies of the HEAD Graduate School. Her research interest is in the role of cognition in language and memory. Her work is funded by Swedish Research Council, Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences, Swedish Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare and she has received career awards from Linköping University. She collaborates nationally and internationally. Recent work has focused on cognitive representation and cross-modal plasticity associated with deafness.
