In a recent survey, school-based audiologists and speech-language pathologists rated the importance of nine issues in relation to the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Audiologists rated early intervention as “very important” most frequently, followed by connection with the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program. SLPs also rated early intervention as “very important” most frequently, followed by funding. Ratings will be used to help inform ASHA’s IDEA advocacy priorities in future years.
