The Bill Daniels Center for Children’s Hearing at Children's Hospital Colorado provides the most comprehensive diagnostic and rehabilitation programs for children who are deaf and hard-of-hearing and their families in the Rocky Mountain region. Because education of graduate students in audiology and speech-language pathology is part of our mission, we enjoy sharing our experience and expertise with Au.D. students. The Bill Daniels Center for Children’s Hearing currently offers externships for fourth year Au.D.students. Externs receive intensive training in diagnostic and rehabilitative audiology services for infants and young children including behavioral audiometry, electrophysiological measures performed while a child is in natural sleep or under anesthesia, advanced technology hearing aid evaluation and fitting, and cochlear implant experience. In addition, externs may participate in parent education and speech and language therapy services for children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Externs receive 100% supervision during their training to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations governing student services, supervision, and licensing restrictions. All preceptors maintain ASHA certification.
