Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this seminar the participants will be able to:
• Describe impacts of modifications to behavioural hearing assessments for individuals with intellectual disabilities
• Quantify impacts that syndromes associated with intellectual disabilities have on auditory electrophysiological measures
• List “reasonable adjustments” that can be made to audiological care for individuals with intellectual disabilities that can support access to care
