Speech and Hearing Professionals in Washington.
The purpose of this survey was to assess the current supply of speech and hearing manpower, and to develop a profile of characteristics for these professionals in the state of Washington. A mail-back questionnaire containing both open-ended and structured questions was used to survey all the active and inactive speech and hearing professionals in the state. A follow up of non-respondents was carried out, generating an 84 0/0 final response rate. The findings of this study included information on the current supply and distribution of speech and hearing professionals in Washington, the differences between actively employed and inactive professionals which might account for their employment status, attitudes toward and participation patterns in continuing education in the field, the nature of case loads carried by those in active practice, and the previous education of these professionals. Comparisons are made between men and women and between different age groups. (Twenty statistical tables, a seven item bibliography, and the questionnaire are included.) (KP)
