Former Clarke Employee Wins ASHA Editor's Award


November 14, 2017—The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) honored former Clarke employee Frank Iglehart with the Editor's Award for the American Journal of Audiology.

Dr. Iglehart was an Educational Audiology with Clarke from 1992 through 2010. The award recognizes his work for "Speech Perception in Classroom Acoustics by Children with Cochlear Implants and With Typical Hearing." This study measured speech perception ability in children with cochlear implants and children with typical hearing when listening across ranges of reverberation times (RTs) and speech-to-noise ratios. "We're incredibly proud of Dr. Iglehart for his diligence and commitment to helping children who are deaf or hard of hearing to succeed," said Doug Scott, Interim CEO, Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech. "Clarke remains a leader in helping those with hearing loss to thrive, especially in the classroom, because of dedicated staff members who advocate for students with hearing loss to achieve their maximum educational potential."
