Permanent Childhood Hearing Loss 

In this map, treatment is broken down into the specific areas speech-language pathologists and audiologists most commonly treat. Within each box, we have provided up to date information pertaining to the three components of EBP: external scientific evidence (i.e. evidence-based guidelines, systematic reviews), clinical expertise (i.e. consensus-based guidelines, ASHA policy documents) and client/patient perspectives (e.g. studies examining patient or caregiver assessment/treatment satisfaction). Boxes that appear gray do not have any evidence contained within them at this time; however, as new evidence becomes available, these boxes may become populated. Additional information related to this population may also be available in N-CEP's Compendium of EBP Guidelines and Systematic Reviews.
