Dr Lynn Bielski’s Presentation | Hearing Loss and Skeletal Dysplasia
Join Zoom Meeting

Presentation Description: Skeletal Dysplasia and Hearing Loss: There is not a great deal of data on the prevalence of hearing loss in persons with skeletal dysplasia, and less on the use of amplification (e.g., hearing aids and cochlear implants). This presentation will focus on data collected from adults and parents/guardians of children with skeletal dysplasia. It will explore the relationship between different types of skeletal dysplasia, hearing loss and use of amplification.

She received her PhD from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013.  She teaches courses in diagnostics, amplification, electrophysiology, and hearing conservation. Her research interests include auditory-visual communication and the relation between audition and cognitive function, especially working memory. Her area of clinical focus is auditory processing in children and adults.
