Many years ago, more than I care to admit, I began my career as a clinical audiologist. I provided hearing testing and made recommendations for amplification for individuals of all ages. That is when I realized that I truly enjoy working with children and their families. I left the clinical practice and joined a private practice, providing aural habilitation for children with significant hearing loss and working with their families. I entered the field of educational audiology approximately 12 years ago. I worked 6 years in a public school system, providing services to children in the mainstreamed educational environment. The latter part of my career has been at a deaf school that uses a bilingual-bicultural philosophy. I am supposed to be able to talk about language and culture. Oops, I thought I was an audiologist!
