This letter is being written not only in my capacity as an audiologist but as a member of the Board of Trustees of the consumer group, Self Help for Hard of Hearing People, Inc. (SHHH). The purpose is to solicit your support on a project that can be of inestimable assistance to many people in our country who are hard of hearing.
Aural rehabilitation (A/R) is a major aspect of our professional responsibility and a central component of our self-definition as audiologists. Most of us would agree that more should be done to improve A/R services. Much more can be done right now if we accept the notion that A/R ought to be conceptualized as a partnership arrangement between the clinician and the client. That is, clients can—and should— contribute to their own rehabilitative process.
