With the advent of EDHI and advances in hearing technology, children with hearing loss are receiving intervention at earlier ages and in a variety of environments, which has resulted in a shift in the course of “deaf education.” For SLPs, “Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing” remains one of several low incidence populations on their caseloads, yet they are expected to be experts in all areas of communication. Since there is a multitude of factors to consider for such a small population of children, we will explore an easy-to-reference, alphabetical inventory of things to remember when providing services to children with hearing loss, regardless of their age or stage of hearing.
