In recent years, I have given invited presentations at state and provincial meetings on the topic of amplification for infants and young children. Over time, a consistent pattern has emerged. For whatever reason, the session on amplification for children is scheduled concurrently with a session on otoacoustic emissions. The session on emissions is held in the Grand Ballroom; the session on amplification for children is held in the Riverboat Suite B3, which is adjacent to and no larger than the men’s washroom. Surely I cannot complain—Amplification for Children has never filled the Riverboat Suite B3, and the Grand Ballroom has been Standing Room Only. Consequently, I am tempted to entitle these contemplations on the current status of pediatric habilitation: Otoacoustic Emissions: Follow-Up Procedures. No doubt this would attract the attention of more of my colleagues and perhaps once, just once, bring habilitation into the Grand Ballroom of this profession.
