Purpose: This study investigates clinical practice patterns and parent perception of intervention for children with mild hearing loss (HL).
Conclusion:s Audiologists appear to be moving toward regularly providing amplification for children with mild HL. However, delays in HA fittings indicate that further educating professionals and parents about the benefits of early amplification and intervention is warranted to encourage timely fitting and consistent use of HAs.
