It is essential that children with hearing loss have sufficient auditory access to be able to use hearing to develop speech and language, to develop literacy, and to build social skills. This workshop will discuss behavioral evaluation of infants and children using video demonstration, selecting and modifying technology to maximize auditory function, determining when it is necessary to move to cochlear implants, evaluating speech perception, and using audiological information to plan management. The role of audiologists, speech-language pathologists, auditory verbal therapists, parents, teachers, and others in assuring auditory access will be discussed.
