Dear Colleagues,
Although we are relatively small, Special Interest Group (SIG) 9 has a rich diversity in its membership. We are composed of 211 audiologists, 326 speech-language pathologists, 35 professionals with dual certification, and 65 other professionals and students. We are, however, unified on our common interest in children and how they access and employ auditory information. This issue of Perspectives presents the work of members with diverse research interests related to our common focus. While most of us have a fairly restricted focus in our professional lives, the broad array of information relating to children and how they encounter and interact with the world of sound is of general interest to all of us. Some of the authors in this issue of Perspectives address topics that pertain to all children, not just those with hearing loss. The article about the complex relationship between fatigue and hearing loss and another regarding the challenges to the developing auditory system in making use of auditory cues in complex listening situations are in this category. Not surprisingly, other articles focus on hearing loss in children and will be of particular interest to those of us who are clinicians. The new year is almost upon us and our editorial team including Todd Houston (editor), Karen Muñoz (associate editor), Kristina Blaiser (professional development manager), and Kathy Beauchaine (continuing education manager) are hard at work developing a robust schedule of topics and authors for the two issues of Perspectives scheduled for publication in 2015, as well as other continuing education opportunities. If you have ideas for continuing education topics or an interest in contributing to an issue, I know they would be happy to hear from you. Your opinions and input are always welcomed and valued. Thank you for your continued support of children with hearing loss and very best wishes for a fulfilling New Year.
