Guidelines are provided for the establishment and maintenance of public school speech and hearing programs. Administrative information covers planning the speech correction program, different types of programs, qualifications and responsibilities of clinicians, facilities for the programs, suggestions for supervisors, and state regulations and responsibilities. Organization of the speech correction program includes screening and evaluation, scheduling, group and individual therapy, parent contacts, and equipment and supplies. The program outline in hearing deals with identification audiometry, goals for the school-age child, periodicity of testing, personnel needs, record keeping, program evaluation, referral criteria, recommended minimum standards of environment and equipment, frequencies to be tested, intensity levels, and maintenance of equipment. Test methodology is described, and information is included on use and maintenance of hearing aids. A final section discusses professional personnel liaison; parent role; health, welfare, and rehabilitation services; speech and hearing programs and schools; and community information projects. Administrative records and clinical forms, standards and information for clinicians, rules for operation and maintenance of equipment, suggestions for teachers and parents, a 10-item bibliography, and a list of three instructional materials are included.
