Recent advances in technology and the availability of technologies and associated procedures have resulted in increased contributions from the field of audiology to the development of spoken language by children who are deaf or hard of hearing. This chapter surveys many of these advances, including (1) the availability of hearing screening in early infancy as well as the assessment procedures used and the protocols or sets of assessment used in these early screenings; (2) newly developed or improved technologies and procedures for specifying the characteristics of an individual's hearing loss and hearing functioning; and (3) increased information about etiologies responsible for increasing access to auditory information and, therefore, to spoken language.
