Students with hearing impairments who are educated in classes with normally hearings peers represent the majority of children with hearing impairment. With hearing losses ranging from mild to profound, they require services to optimize their use of residual hearing and reduce the secondary effects of hearing loss, such as communication deficits and academic delays. For most of these students, the speech-language pathologist will be the on-site specialist in hearing responsible for designing a collaborative rehabilitation/education plan that addresses all deficit areas and for assisting in its implementation in the classroom.
