A survey was conducted of the membership of the Educational Audiology Association (EAA) to determine the emerging level of best practices in the field. An enthusiastic response from the membership provided information about optimal amplification monitoring, the application of the consultation model, and the appropriate use of some clinical expertise. The results of this study may serve as a springboard for further discussion regarding the development of professional identity and the provision of optimal audiological services to students with hearing impairments.
