A hearing aid test prograrn was developed, using portable electroacoustic equipment, to assess and improve the condition of hearing aids worn by Cincinnati public school children. Hearing aid checks were performed semi-annually for both school auditory training equipment and personal hearing aids. The program's results have shown the need for an additional mid-year check and subsequent maintenance for school auditory training equipment. A bonus of the program has been the visibility it has afforded the hearing aid check procedure.
