I am finding otoacoustic emissions to be VERY helpful in diagnosing/
screening young children for hearing loss.  My of my clients are
multiplied handicapped, and OAEs are invaluable.  It is also a useful
diagnostic tool for seperating sensory vs. neural hearing loss.  I don't
want to see a hearing aid or cochlear implant on someone with a normally
functioning cochlea.  There is still a lot to learn about OAEs, but they
look very promising.
