This course will broaden the knowledge and skills in hearing and audiological sciences for professionals in other health &/or education disciplines. Graduates will be able to contextualise and integrate a more interdisciplinary translation of practice into their own area of practice to make a difference in the lives of individuals with communication and functional audiological impairment.
Students will be introduced to acoustics, speech perception, anatomy, physiology and auditory development and function across the lifespan. Later, attention will be paid to the areas of pathophysiology and its impact on biomedical and biopsychosocial functions. Measurement and rehabilitation tools are explored with the intention of facilitating an understanding of the degree of functional impairment in the context of the individual’s environment in an effort to facilitate the development and implementation of person-centred management plans.
The Specialist Certificate in Hearing Science is a 25 point online coursework program consisting of one 25 point subject; Audiological Science (25 points)
