Educational Audiology

Hearing loss has grave implications for the educational process and success of the individual child and for the educational system. Audiology services for support of children with hearing loss were mandated in the public schools as early as 1975. Although clinical diagnostic audiology services are essential in the schools, it is clear that educational audiology services also involve planning and delivery of (re)habilitation services following diagnosis. Unique to educational audiology are skills such as analyzing instructional listening dynamics, recommending modifications for the school environment or programs. School personnel and parents are assisted to help make instruction accessible to students with hearing loss for their academic and social success. The services of the educational audiologist are numerous and may vary considerably depending on the needs of the student. For assistance with Educational Audiology please contact Lisa Hebel.
