Bridging the Gap From the Clinic to the Classroom
The program was originally aired as part of the “Audiology 2012: Success for Students With Hearing Loss” online conference (October 17–29, 2012).
As school-aged clients leave the audiology clinic and return to their classrooms, a clinical audiologist may wonder if school personnel know how to use hearing aids and other hearing assistive technology to benefit the student in his or her educational environment—especially if there's not a school-based audiologist in the school district. In this session, we'll focus on the essential collaboration between clinical audiologists, school-based audiologists, school-based SLPs, and school personnel as it relates to children with hearing loss and other auditory disorders. We'll discuss what to consider when recommending and/or dispensing hearing assistive technology to school-aged clients in the clinic, and what type of information schools and clinics need to exchange about students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
You will be able to:
- list ways that educational and clinical audiologists as well as SLPs and teachers can collaborate to improve services for students
- determine compatibility of personal amplification devices with hearing assistance technology for school-aged clients
- describe the unique audiological needs of school-aged clients
