Throwback Thursday! Featured in the May 14, 1996, issue of the ASHA Leader, the NSSLHA Executive Council posed for a photo after meeting at ASHA's National Office in March 1996. Also during that time (and reported on the front page right next to this photo) ASHA launched its first ever website at www.asha.org. The site was promoted to contain information about education programs, the annual convention, careers, and consumer and marketing information. Members were directed to access the site by using Mosaic or Netscape. Let's hear it for our new mobile-friendly design! #tbt

How's this for a happy outcome? The New York Police Department has lifted a policy that had previously forced police officers to retire if they needed hearing aids. Hundreds are expected to return to duty!

Research Tuesday! A study in JSLHR assessed the effective identification of functional hearing loss using behavioral threshold measures. For each protocol, participants feigned a hearing loss first on an audiogram and then for a screening test. Using both the screening test and a comparison of the initial audiogram with the screening test, the spondee and 3-tone protocols resulted in 100% true positives and 0% false positives for functional hearing loss. Either of these protocols could be used clinically or in occupational hearing conservation programs.

Purpose: Four functional hearing loss protocols were evaluated. Method: For each protocol, 30 participants feigned a hearing loss first on an audiogram and then for a screening test that began a threshold search from extreme levels (–10 or 90 dB HL). Two-tone and 3-tone ...
