What is an Audiologist?

Audiologists hold a doctoral degree in Audiology from a program accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).  They are trained in the identification and treatment of auditory impairments for individuals of all ages.  They are employed in various settings including hospitals, private practices, otolaryngology offices and schools.  In addition to hearing loss, Audiologists also evaluate and treat tinnitus and provide rehabilitation services to improve listening abilities.

When to take the next step:

On average, individuals who are identified as having a hearing loss wait up to 7 years before they consider investing in amplification.  In reality, those years are when amplification is most beneficial to an individual with hearing loss.  Using amplification during this period helps prevent auditory deprivation, or the lack of adequate auditory stimulation, which can lead to impaired ability to understand speech. Individuals who obtain amplification soon after they are identified with hearing loss have an easier time adjusting to being able to hear again.  Improving your hearing abilities also improves your communication with family members and friends, which in turn helps to enhance your overall quality of life!
