Course Abstract
The Art of Interpreting Audiograms was developed for speech-language pathologists who find interpreting audiograms and other audiometric information a bit daunting. This course provides a step-by-step approach to determining from an audiogram: if a hearing loss exists, what type of hearing loss it is, and what is the level of the hearing loss. Basic hearing threshold finding techniques are also discussed.
