OUR PRACTICE

AUDIOLOGY

 

LICENSED/CERTIFIED AUDIOLOGISTS

Audiologists hold a doctoral degree from accredited universities. They have special training in the prevention, identification, assessment, and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders. 

 

They are required to complete a full-time externship and pass a national competency examination, whether it be the certifying examination from the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) or from the American Speech-Language, Hearing Association (ASHA). 

 

Most states also have licensure requirements.  But the education does not stop there.  To maintain state licensure or certification, continuing education is a must, thus they are always on top of the latest developments.

 

AUDIOLOGISTS CAN HELP

Perhaps you are a person that does not even realize you have hearing problems. Many people with hearing loss have become accustomed to the ringing in their ears, or the faded words and sounds that are a part of their everyday life.

 

Hearing problems affect approximately 21 million Americans-adults, children and infants-with causes ranging from such medical problems as ear infection, low birth weight or birth defect, drug use and tumors, to conditions such as prolonged exposure to loud noise or the normal aging process.

 

Untreated hearing loss can have a  devastating impact on family relations, work and academic performance. You can help yourself with hearing loss by seeing a certified audiologist.

 

TREATMENT FOR HEARING PROBLEMS
 

By working with a licensed audiologist, you can help yourself  to lifelong better hearing. Audiologists can evaluate a person's hearing ability, assess the extent of any hearing loss, identify its source and recommend an appropriate treatment program.

 

Throughout the course of treatment, the audiologist can provide information to help you monitor your progress. Audiologists also are specially trained to provide aural rehabilitation.

 

They can help identify ways to reduce the impact of hearing loss in situations when it is difficult to communicate, such as a conversation in a crowded room or when more than one person speaks at a time.

 

Audiologists also can conduct tests to determine whether a hearing aid or another assistive listening device can help, dispense hearing instruments and provide appropriate follow-up care.
