It is my immense pleasure to present the first issue of Perspectives for 2015. I thank Dr. Todd Houston and his editorial team for putting together a series of articles with timely and much-needed information.
For children with hearing loss, one of the major factors influencing development of spoken language communication is provision and maintenance of appropriate amplification, which is a challenge for professionals and families alike. The first article is a comprehensive literature review on this topic by Karen Muñoz and Melanie M. Hill. This discussion is continued in the article by McCreery, Walker, and Spratford. Both articles provide invaluable information to the practicing professional about management strategies to enhance use of hearing aids in the pediatric population. Moving on to the school years, the issue of effective communication access for children with hearing loss is highlighted by Karen L. Anderson. The concept of effective communication access leads us beyond information provided by the audiogram to the realm of functional communication in a classroom. The last article by Kevin J. Miller also concerns the school-age population. Here, the evidence base for the effectiveness of current educational practices is questioned and recommendations for improving practices are presented.
