>ASHA Telephone Seminar Explores  the Genetics of Hearing Loss The Genetics
of Hearing Loss and Genetic Counseling:   What the Practicing Audiologist
Needs to Know
>Slide-Enhanced TeleSeminar, Friday, May 15, 1998. 1:00-3:00 pm (Eastern
Daylight Time)
>	You as an audiologist employed in clinical, educational, and academic
settings, are often the initial contact with the parent of a child with a
hearing impairment of unknown origin.  Awareness of typical hearing-related
syndromes will aid you in helping clients and their families in addressing
the hearing loss and related sequelae.  This TeleSeminar will introduce you
to the field of genetics as it relates to hearing ability. Presenters will
discuss the basics of genetics as it relates to hearing impairment, address
communication sequelae and other associated features characteristic of
these syndromes, and note appropriate strategies for referral to other
health care professionals and genetic counselors.  Information about
accessibility to genetic counseling, education and credentials of genetic
counselors, the characteristics and strategies of genetic counseling, and
the cultural sensitivity to the needs and concerns of the Deaf Community
will be covered.  Faculty will introduce the purposes and goals of the
Human Genome Project and the Boys Town National Hospital Registry for
Genetic Deafness.
>	Learner Outcomes: You will be able to identify syndromes associated with
hearing loss and other communication disorders; make appropriate referrals
to other health care providers; make informed referrals to genetic
counseling; define the purpose of national databases on genetic hearing
loss and be able to access or add information as appropriate.
