Rationale

(Statement telling why this resolution was prepared. Indicate issue of concern. Include reference to related policies.)

A Guidelines document, Audiologic Assessment of Children From Birth to 5 Years of Age, was developed by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and passed by the Legislative Council in April 2005 to facilitate audiologic evaluation of children who were either identified through screening programs or referred directly to audiologists for hearing assessment. ASHA certified audiologists in clinical practice seek national practice policies on which to base their clinical services. Therefore, the scope of this Roles, Knowledge, and Skills document has been specifically focused on family-centered, culturally competent assessment, from birth to 5 years of age, with consideration of auditory evoked potentials, behavioral audiometry, otoacoustic emissions, acoustic immittance procedures, developmental screenings, and functional assessment. This document reflects ASHA's commitment to set high knowledge and skills requirements for certified audiologists in the provision of audiologic assessment services for young children.

Approval and publication of this document will help facilitate quality service delivery by audiologists working with this population of infants and young children and provide information and assistance to the membership and other interested parties.
