Hi Laura,

This group caught my eye because my wife is an Educational Audiologist,
which means she does stuff that is probably similar to what you want to
do.  If you want, I'll forward any messages that you want to send her (she
doesn't have e-mail or even and Internet connection as far as I know). 
Anyway, she went to Illinois State University, which apparently has an
excellent program, and I'm sure she knows about other programs, too.  

Also, I have a question.  This is the first time I've popped into this
group and it's unclear to me who established it and for what purpose.  If
you know this please tell me.  I think my wife will be interested in
coming into my office and checking this out, but I probably should have
better idea about what it is actually when I tell her about it.
