Members of the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology were surveyed to determine their views on speechreading and speechreading tests. Although a minority of those surveyed were providing speechreading training, most considered speechreading important but were concerned about the validity and usefulness of speechreading tests. Audiologists felt a need for new speechreading tests in all age groups, ranging from preschool to older adults. Thus, there is a need for new speechreading tests to go along with the new methods of training, such as speech tracking.
