Abstract

This paper is a single case study following an individual diagnosed with CADAS IL (cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infartes and leukoencoephalopathy) who also has a bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Research and a critical literature review were explored to gather information to further examine the connection between hearing and cognition. Research and methods of pre- and post- testing after cognitive therapy are included and integrated into this paper. Follow-up tests were administered and the results are compared with the previous testing that had been done. Implications involving self-efficacy were further explored in this paper.
