Since the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990, it appears that more students with speech, language, and hearing disorders are gaining entrance into accredited speech-language pathology and audiology training programs. As professionals, we encourage interested individuals to pursue careers in the area of their disability. Many individuals with hearing or speech-language impairments relate well to their clients because of the common bond that exists. Audiologists who have hearing loss must certainly possess a unique understanding of the problems faced by their clients. The purpose of this article is to examine the issues surrounding the education of students with hearing loss who are training to become audiologists. The impact on the classroom instructors, the student, classmates, clinical supervisors, and clients will be examined.
