A Preliminary Report on the Need for Statewide Standards for Hearing Screening.
McDermott, Lois D.; VanTasell, Dianne J.
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v12 n1 p44-48 Jan 1981
The article reports the frequency and hearing levels used in hearing screening by school districts in Minnesota. Such an array of standards probably indicates similar variation in pass-fail criteria and therefore precludes accurate reporting of the prevalence of hearing impairment in school age children. The need for standardization throughout the identification system is discussed. (Author)
