These children presented with active otitis media and were not feeling up to the manual testing task. I turned to conditioning them with play audiometry and was able to complete the testing needed on all four children in under an hour—solo. I was initially skeptical, as I was in full view of the child and was using one hand to assist with conditioning and the other to operate the tablet simultaneously. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my proximity did not distract the child from the task at hand.

The first ACAE Corner article was published in the November/December 2011 issue of Audiology Today. As some of you may recall, the American Academy of Audiology Annual Conference that year was held in Chicago, with Richard Roberts serving as program chair.
The inaugural ACAE Corner column, titled simply “On Accreditation,” was written by Gerald Church, then a professor in, and the director of, the doctor of audiology program at Central Michigan University.
