Welcome to fall 2010 and this issue of Perspectives, which focuses on “Contemporary Outcomes for Children With Hearing Loss.” Audiologists and speech-language pathologists who serve children with hearing loss must be versed in provision of preferred practices if children are to experience outcomes that allow them to hear and function well out in the world. Drastic changes—such as earlier identification, state-of-the-art amplification, and increased empowerment of families—have changed the long-term potential for children with hearing loss. The ability to hear the spoken word is much improved. Earlier use of amplification, earlier enrollment in early intervention, and a focus on teaching parents strategies to help their child hear have made this time more hopeful than any other time in history. This is a new day—one that the contributors of this issue of Perspectives recognize and celebrate!
