Audiology, Interprofessional Collaboration, and School Health Services

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages the use of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model for integrating health practices in the school setting (Lewallen et al, 2015). The WSCC model emphasizes a collaborative approach to improve student health and academic outcomes. The Whole Child element of the model maintains the child as the focal point through five tenets: (1) being healthy, (2) being safe, (3) being engaged, (4) being supported, and (5) being challenged.
