The use of impedance audiometry by the school speech-language pathologist has been suggested by Navarro and Klodd (1978). This suggestion raises questions regarding the use of minimally trained speech-language pathologists in conducting an impedance screening program, obtaining the cooperation of the children during testing, and dealing with problems related to referral procedures. Answers to these questions are discussed, along with an account of a pilot otoadmittance screening program. Results of this program indicate that school speech-language pathologists are able to conduct an impedance screening program under the supervision of an audiologist.
