This book takes the reader through the history of audiology in the schools, focusing on legislation that has shaped the face of school-based audiology. Core concepts involving academic achievement in students who are deaf/hard-of-hearing, classroom acoustics, hearing screening programs, hearing loss prevention programs, diagnostic evaluation protocols, hearing aid and FM system verification procedures, and classroom amplification are covered. Concepts regarding collaboration with other school-based professionals and classroom accommodations and modifications are outlined and provide examples for real-life application.
The varied and ever-changing roles of audiologists in the educational setting are described and highlighted with “vignettes,” or short personal statements describing real practitioners’ degree and training information, work settings, job descriptions within their school districts, and day-to-day responsibilities.
