5 Matching Questions

  1. Auditory Training programs for children - DASL II
  2. Discrimination
  3. Basic Auditory Perception Abilities: range of intensity levels the human ear can process
  4. Ability to process speech is related to: Redundancy
  5. Memory
  1. a 0 dB SPL to 130 dB SPL
  2. b related to its predictability; the greater the redundancy, the easier to guess what was said (even if didn't hear entire message)
    -conversational speech can generally be described as highly redundant
    -factors associated with redundancy: syntactic, semantic, and situational constraints
  3. c same or different sound
  4. d Developmental Approach to Successful Listening, 2nd Edition (DASL II)
    -highly structured, based on a hierarchy of listening skills
    -sound awareness, phonetic listening, auditory comprehension
  5. e retain verbal information, combine speech units to derive meaning

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. -common form of audiologic rehab emphasizing the role of communication strategies and pragmatics to facilitate successful communication
    -anticipatory strategies (minimize distance from speaker)
    -repair strategies (ask speaker to repeat all or part of message)
  2. abnormal lighting, competing visual stimulation, competing auditory stimulation
  3. -home intervention treatment program for infants and families
    -developmentally based auditory-training program
    -utilized in conjunction with speech and language stimulation, 4 phases and 11 general skills
  4. at frequencies below 1000 Hz, attributed largely to the fundamental frequency of the adult human voice
  5. -newborns possess a functional auditory system that is capable of perceiving auditory stimuli at 20 weeks gestation. Auditory processing skills continue to develop and refine following birth
    -rapid emergence of auditory skills is crucial for the development of speech processing skills and the emergence of speech/language

5 True/False Questions

  1. Average speech intensity when measured at a distance of 1 meterformal and informal
    -monosyllabic word lists
    -perception of consonants
    -tests which employ sentence like stimuli wwith speech babble
    -ability to perceive connected discourse
    -introducing competing noise to a test situation
    -use of visual cues (bisensory-using hearing and visual together) to evaluate integrative skills


  2. Commonly used tests (in assessment of auditory skills in children)young children - standardized tests but also informal testing and observation are highly relied upon
    older children - usually more formal, in depth assessment of overall speech perception abilities


  3. Average shout65 dB HL


  4. Closureincludes a host of factors that can reduce the amount of info present to the listener


  5. Ability to process speech is related to: Physical properties-intensity and frequency ranges of impaired ears are not always sufficient to provide total perception of a speech signal
    -consonant perception is typically far more difficult for those with hearing loss
    -overall degree of difficulty in speech perception is related to the intensity and frequency features of the hearing loss (audiogram configuration)
