Achieving high-quality hearing aid fitting in children is an interdisciplinary task and a challenge for all involved specialist disciplines. According to quality agreements (standards), comparative hearing aid fitting is mandatory prior to prescription. Furthermore, RECD measurements and, in older children, in-situ measurements should be applied on a regular basis for finetuning and adjustment of the hearing aid fitting. ENT physicians, phoniatricians and pediatric audiologists, pediatric acousticians, teachers of the hearing impaired, and special educational needs teachers should work together in an interdisciplinary approach.
