Soundfield amplification in classrooms may enhance the entire academic experience for the majority of young children by overriding the inappropriate classroom acoustics found in schools throughout the country. In this issue of the newsletter, Carl Crandall and Joseph Smaldino present the advantages and potential disadvantages of soundfield amplification. Measuring the efficacy of soundfield amplification is critical as school and health care administrators examine the cost/benefit ratio of the systems. Catherine Palmer presents a method of structured observation that documents the effectiveness of the soundfield system for individual learners and Gail Rosenberg describes the results of efficacy studies undertaken in Florida. Karen Anderson presents ways that clinical audiologists can interact with school personnel and explains two efficacy measures for classroom listening behavior that can be shared between the clinic and school.
