The increase in the numbers of hearing-impaired students served in public schools in recent years has led to concern over the availability and quality of audiological services in that setting. Within the field of audiology, the specialty practice of Educational Audiology has begun to be recognized as one way to insure that students receive services from qualified individuals, but training in educational audiology is not yet widely available. This paper reviews the public schools' audiologic service needs, presents a plan for in-service education in this specialty, and proposes the establishment of a new accreditation in Educational Audiology.
