The inclusion of an Educational Audiologist in Service provision can have a long term positive impact on the achievement of deaf children and young people. Promoting multi-disciplinary working with health and other agencies results in improved communication and enhanced provision. Keeping a breast of on going changes in technology can be challenging for professionals following their initial training. An Educational Audiologist can provide the vital link in future proofing a Service, by providing continual professional developments and updates to Teacher of the Deaf and other professionals. Overseeing protocols for technology use and having a broader picture of what is happening in the rest of the country can help to promote equity of provision across the UK.
