We are excited to have Rachel Loveless, Au.D., CCC-A at our 8th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium speaking on Auditory Processing Disorders. Her presentation title is “A Cognitive Framework for Auditory Processing Disorders”.
Rachel is a clinical audiologist at Boystown National Research Hospital in Omaha, NE. She completed her Doctor of Audiology at the University of South Dakota in 2010 and completed her externship year at the Ear, Head, and Neck Institute in Minneapolis, MN. She was one of five national winners of the Research Forum Award through the American Academy of Audiology for her research in professional knowledge of pediatric genetics. She began working at Boystown National Research Hospital in the summer of 2010, where she continues to specialize in central auditory processing disorders, pediatric and adult diagnostics, pediatric and adult hearing aid fitting, and vestibular testing and treatments.
Rachel’s presentation will explore the cognitive framework of Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD). It will cover the basics of central auditory processing disorders, including defining characteristics, types of CAPD, assessment, and treatment. This will be covered by relating back to basic neuroscience of auditory processing and information processing in the brain. Application will not only apply to those working in a clinical setting, but also those in non-clinical settings to recognize signs of CAPD with clients or athletes.
This year's Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium will be held at our new PRI Headquarters (as we are nearing completion of construction of our brand new 5500 sq ft space and scheduled to move in on April 1st)! To receive the early tuition rate of $465.00 you must register by March 18th. CLICK HERE for more information and to register online!
