2. Describe aspects of assessment, planning, and counseling regarding safety in and out of the home.
3. Describe the limitations of one commonly used HAT device
The comprehensive needs assessment method for selecting and recommending HAT for pediatric patients was created utilizing developmental milestone checklists from audiology, speech-language pathology, medical, and allied professions. A developmental milestone approach helps clinicians adapt intervention planning based on the child's acquired skills.
