Abstract: Although Glue Ear has been known about for many years, and at one time was life threatening, today many educational professionals see it as a minor issue with no long term problems. While this may be the case for the majority of children, those who have the condition in the longer term may be impacted in psycho-social development, cognitive processing and academic performance. This article identifies aspects from the primarily quantitative research which suggest that the greatest impact is likely to be on those young people and their parents with the severe form of the condition. Some of the potential implications for EP practice are identified.
