The Effect Of An External Auditory Stimulus On Postural Stability Of Participants With Cochlear Implants, Rachael Jeanette Mangiore Jan 2012

The Effect Of An External Auditory Stimulus On Postural Stability Of Participants With Cochlear Implants, Rachael Jeanette Mangiore

Independent Studies and Capstones

Postural control was evaluated in cochlear implant participants with and without amplification under several auditory paradigms. Speed of sway was recorded in each condition by means of Computerized Dynamic Posturography. Results indicate that an external sound source significantly improves balance in patients with cochlear implants.


Knowledge Of Basic Concepts In Deaf/Hard Of Hearing Children, Lauren Schafer Jan 2012

Knowledge Of Basic Concepts In Deaf/Hard Of Hearing Children, Lauren Schafer

Independent Studies and Capstones

Basic concept knowledge of children who were deaf/hard of hearing was tested using the Bracken Basic Concept Scale: 3rd Edition. These children were given both the receptive and expressive portions of the test. Results indicate delays in overall basic concept knowledge in children who are deaf compared to their normal-hearing peers.


Students Who Are Deaf/Hard Of Hearing With Learning Challenges: Strategies For Classroom Instruction, Stacey N. Busch Jan 2012

Students Who Are Deaf/Hard Of Hearing With Learning Challenges: Strategies For Classroom Instruction, Stacey N. Busch

Independent Studies and Capstones

This paper discusses the prevalence of children who are deaf or hard of hearing with additional learning challenges and the need for further trainings for strategies to better serve this population.


An Analysis Of Pre-Reading Strategies In Deaf/Hard Of Hearing Students, Haley R. Nealey Jan 2012

An Analysis Of Pre-Reading Strategies In Deaf/Hard Of Hearing Students, Haley R. Nealey

Independent Studies and Capstones

This literature review evaluates print knowledge ability in normally hearing pre-readers with and without specific language impairments. It then discusses implications of print knowledge ability in students who are deaf or hard of hearing and early intervention strategies.


The Relation Between Speech Recognition In Noise And The Speech-Evoked Brainstem Response In Normal-Hearing And Hearing-Impaired Individuals, Sheli Lipson Jan 2012

The Relation Between Speech Recognition In Noise And The Speech-Evoked Brainstem Response In Normal-Hearing And Hearing-Impaired Individuals, Sheli Lipson

Independent Studies and Capstones

Little is known about the way speech in noise is processed along the auditory pathway. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relation between listening in noise using the R-Space system and the neurophysiologic response of the speech-evoked auditory brainstem when recorded in quiet and noise in adult participants with mild to moderate hearing loss and normal hearing.


Cytomegalovirus: Educational Outcomes And Implications For Newborn Screening, Emily Margaret Humphrey Jan 2012

Cytomegalovirus: Educational Outcomes And Implications For Newborn Screening, Emily Margaret Humphrey

Independent Studies and Capstones

The focus of this study was to review existing literature and analyze a survey of professional opinion regarding how children with hearing loss caused by congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) function audiologically and educationally. This study proposes a benefit for adding CMV screening to the battery of tests included in the newborn screening protocol to improve educational outcomes of children deafened from CMV.


Speech Perception And Localization Abilities In Pediatric Bilateral Sequential Cochlear Implant Recipients, Lindsay Weberling Jan 2012

Speech Perception And Localization Abilities In Pediatric Bilateral Sequential Cochlear Implant Recipients, Lindsay Weberling

Independent Studies and Capstones

The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate speech perception and localization abilities in children who have received sequential cochlear implants, with the first implant received before age 4 and the second implant received before age 12. Results indicate performance in the bilateral cochlear implant condition is significantly better than listening with each implant alone for the outcome measures used in this study.


An Analysis Of The Use Of Auxiliary Verbs By Deaf Children Using Cochlear Implants, Abigail Lee Meismer Jan 2012

An Analysis Of The Use Of Auxiliary Verbs By Deaf Children Using Cochlear Implants, Abigail Lee Meismer

Independent Studies and Capstones

Spontaneous writing samples of deaf children with cochlear implants were analyzed for auxiliary verb errors. These results were compared to norms of typically developing children.


Educating And Motivating Adolescents Who Are Deaf Or Hard Of Hearing With Drug And Alcohol Addiction: Components Of A Curriculum That Links Adolescents To Appropriate Treatment, Lindsey K. Legendre Jan 2012

Educating And Motivating Adolescents Who Are Deaf Or Hard Of Hearing With Drug And Alcohol Addiction: Components Of A Curriculum That Links Adolescents To Appropriate Treatment, Lindsey K. Legendre

Independent Studies and Capstones

This paper highlights the components necessary for a drug and alcohol addiction curricula to educate, motivate, and link adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing using oral communication to appropriate treatment.


Evaluation Of Directional Microphone Drift In Digital Hearing Aids, Roxanne Kohilakis Jan 2012

Evaluation Of Directional Microphone Drift In Digital Hearing Aids, Roxanne Kohilakis

Independent Studies and Capstones

The occurrence of directional microphone drift following hearing aid use has been infrequently examined. This study uses the front-to-side ratio to evaluate changes in directional microphone output from new behind-the-ear hearing aids and following approximately three months of hearing aid use. Results indicate no overall significant differences in the front-to-side ratio between initial and follow-up measurements.


Acceptable Noise Levels For Neonates In The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Allysa Jennie Knutson Jan 2012

Acceptable Noise Levels For Neonates In The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Allysa Jennie Knutson

Independent Studies and Capstones

The study was a sound survey of naturally occurring noise in a metropolitan hospital NICU. The collected sound level samples were then compared to the noise standard recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. It was concluded that sound levels in the NICU exceed the standard and the standard does not have a proper foundation.


Gaze Stabilization Testing: The Efficiency And Test-Retest Reliability Of User Operated Control Versus The Parameter Estimation (Pest) Algorithm, Michelle E. Hungerford Jan 2012

Gaze Stabilization Testing: The Efficiency And Test-Retest Reliability Of User Operated Control Versus The Parameter Estimation (Pest) Algorithm, Michelle E. Hungerford

Independent Studies and Capstones

The primary objective of this research study is to determine which form of testing, the PEST algorithm or an operator-controlled condition is most accurate and time efficient for administration of the gaze stabilization test


Cisplatin Ototoxicity And Hair Cell Regeneration In The Zebrafish Lateral Line, Alisa A. Genualdi Jan 2012

Cisplatin Ototoxicity And Hair Cell Regeneration In The Zebrafish Lateral Line, Alisa A. Genualdi

Independent Studies and Capstones

Hair cell death and regeneration on the zebrafish posterior lateral line was investigated after cisplatin administration. Hair cell regeneration was first observed by 24 hours of recovery and was further analyzed after specific recovery intervals. Disruption of the notch signaling pathways by the y-secretase inhibitor DAPT resulted in an increase in hair cells at three days of recovery.
