Data were collected representing three audiology service delivery systems: (a) school-based audiology within the district, (b) nonschool-based audiology within the immediate community area, and (c) school-based audiology in a community remote from the school. Analysis of information found in the case records of hearing-impaired students serviced by these delivery systems showed superiority of school-based audiological programs on a variety of quality indicators.
