A questionnaire to determine the opinions and practices concerning the provision of informational counseling to school-aged hearing-impaired students was sent to 255 audiologists. The audiologists responded to items designed to determine who they felt should provide informational counseling on specified topics and the extent to which they provide this information. Results, obtained from 91% of those surveyed, indicated that most audiologists feel they should provide informational counseling on 7 of the 12 topics included on the questionnaire and that they frequently provide this information for 9 of the topics. The possible reasons for these findings and their implications are discussed.
