Educational audiologists are licensed to provide evaluation services in the identification of pupils with a suspected hearing loss and have not been successfully screened, or are difficult to test under the school’s hearing screening program. Educational audiology services include providing and fitting individual pupil auditory trainers/FM systems and custom-made earmolds, when deemed as appropriate by the IEP team, for the benefit of the pupil’s educational performance. In-services are available to teachers and staff on issues of hearing loss and/or amplification devices of pupils. Services also include assisting in the maintenance of hearing aids and serving as a communication link between medical/clinical professionals regarding information on a pupil’s hearing loss to serve his/her educational needs appropriately. Consultation services are available in regard to acoustics and soundfield amplification.
