The educational audiology caucus was held during the 2000 ASHA Convention. It produced a lively discussion about audiology issues in the schools. Public minutes were used to record the thoughts of the participants. Twenty-seven separate comments were recorded. These comments were condensed into three main topics: issues relating to aural habilitation, academic preparation of speech-language pathologists and audiologists, and miscellaneous issues.
The increasing numbers of very young children who are identified with hearing loss require that audi-ologists focus on appropriate habili-tation. In order to meet the communicative and educational needs of very young children with hearing loss, audiologists need to provide “software” (e.g., auditory verbal therapy or other habilitative services) as well as traditional “hardware” (e.g., hearing aids and assistive listening devices). An increasing number of young children are also receiving co-chlear implants. Audiologists need to be well versed in providing habilita-tion to implanted children.
