Abstract

The Alpiner-Meline Aural Rehabilitation Screening Scale (AMAR) is designed to identify individuals who may need aural rehabilitation. The AMAR Screening Scale allowed us lo identify problems related to hearing loss in three categories: (a) self assessment, (b) visual aptitude, and (c) auditory aptitude. Further, the AMAR Screening Scale identifies the effects of hearing loss which cannot be identified solely on the basis of diagnostic audiometric or hearing aid evaluation data.
