During this presentation the importance of hearing throughout the lifespan will be discussed, starting with newborn hearing screening and monitoring hearing throughout life. The effects of hearing loss at different points in life will be discussed. Obviously hearing is important for development of speech and language, but later on in life it can be a risk factor for cognitive issues. 

A review of an audiogram and hearing loss will be presented as will a review of auditory processing and the evaluation of CAPD.
