A healthy pediatric audiology practice may evaluate hundreds of children each year. Of that impressive number, a significant proportion will have a hearing loss which may be impacting their listening and learning in the classroom. Determining which of the children with unilateral, mild, fluctuating, or more severe hearing losses requires habilitation, amplification, or educational intervention is not a simple task. As we all know, not every child with a hearing loss will exhibit language delays, articulation disorders, and learning difficulties. However, we also need to recognize that every child with a hearing loss is at risk for developing these problems. Identifying the children who exhibit problems and are most in need of aural intervention requires desire, communication, cooperation, and persistence. Below are some suggestions on how the pediatric audiologist can interface with the public schools to optimally manage the needs of the child with a hearing impairment.
