Educational Audiology Services
Educational Audiologists are hired or contracted by school districts throughout Colorado. They provide comprehensive support and management to children with listening and/or hearing difficulties, birth through high school graduation. Responsibilities include management of early childhood and school hearing screening programs, assessment and management of auditory disorders, determination and management of hearing instrumentation devices, provision of auditory habilitation activities, management of hearing conservation programs, and counseling and training for school staff and parents. Educational audiologists are the professionals uniquely qualified to ensure that all students have adequate access to auditory information in the learning environment.
Guidelines and Support Documents
The Colorado Rules for the Administration of the Exceptional Children’s Educational Act (ECEA) defines the criteria for identifying a student with a hearing disability. Educational audiologists are a vital part of the team to make this determination. In addition, educational audiologists are key members of a multidisciplinary team to assess and manage auditory processing deficits.
