The use of wireless FM systems as school-worn amplification has increased since the implementation of P.L. 94–142. Through the use of a questionnaire, data were collected from speech, language, and hearing professionals working with hearing-impaired children. Data from two sampling periods (1981–82, 1988–89) revealed few significant changes in the daily implementation of classroom FM system use, and no significant change in attitudes about these systems, although some trends may be emerging that will bear continued monitoring.
