Ear and Hearing: May 1982 - Volume 3 - Issue 3 - p 148-159 Buy Abstract In spite of rehabilitative efforts, many older adults remain minimally interfaced with relevant listening environments. It is proposed that rehabilitative efforts can be made more effective if a procedural model is used to guide the evaluation and remediative strategies used with an individual. To this end, a useful procedural model is presented. The model is annotated and highlighted with procedures and strategies that have been found to be particularly important to audiological evaluation and effective reconditioning of the older adult. © Williams & Wilkins 1982.
