• Audiological services are provided to assess and determine the degree and type of hearing impairment. Audiologists assist with determining the educational significance of an identified hearing loss. GCPS provides audiological support through a site-based diagnostic clinic housed at OMS as well as itinerantly at each of GCPS 132 schools. Diagnostic evaluations are available at Oakland Meadow School to determine and/or monitor hearing sensitivity for any of GCPS 179,000 students. Audiologists provide follow up testing, within local schools, for approximately 1000 GCPS students each year who did not pass a hearing screening. Audiologists also provide Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT) support for students at their local school who have been identified as Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH). This support includes selecting and fitting Hearing Assistive Technology, training staff within the student's school, and working collaboratively with the DHH teacher. Currently, approximately 258 students in either special education classes or mainstream general education classes are receiving this type of consultative service.
