Audiology

Audiology  involves assessment, management and therapeutic rehabilitation of people with hearing and balance problems, and associated disorders. This work involves patients of all ages, from newborn babies and children to working adults and elderly people.

Audiologists are the primary health-care professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and manage hearing loss and balance disorders in adults and children.

 

  • Audiologists evaluate and diagnose hearing loss and vestibular (balance) disorders

  • prescribe, fit, and dispense hearing aids and other amplification and hearing assistance technologies

  • are members of cochlear implant teams

  • perform ear- or hearing-related surgical monitoring

  • design and implement hearing conservation programs

  • design and implement newborn hearing screening programs

  • provide hearing rehabilitation training such as auditory training and listening skills improvement

  • assess and treat individuals, especially children, with central auditory processing disorders

  • assess and treat individuals with tinnitus (noise in the ear, such as ringing)

  • Audiologists treat all ages and types of hearing loss: the elderly, adults, teens, children, and infants.

  • Almost all types of hearing loss are treatable by an audiologist.

  • Most hearing loss that is caused by nerve damage can be treated by an audiologist with hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and hearing rehabilitation.
