WHAT IS AN AUDIOLOGIST?
Audiology is the profession dealing with the management of hearing, hearing impairment and deafness, noise measurement and control, vestibular assessment and management, cerumen management, central auditory processing disorder, and cochlear implants. An Audiologist diagnoses hearing loss and initiates rehabilitation to help clients cope with everyday communicative demands, including the selection and fitting of hearing aids, emotional, linguistic, and cognitive functioning in their home, work, and social environment. Aural rehabilitation may involve working with adults and children, and educating and developing the skills of caregivers, educators, and other family members. Audiologists also measure and manage exposure to noise in the work environment to help prevent hearing loss.
Audiologists work with individuals, groups, and communities of all ages, not only on assessment and remediation of hearing and balance difficulties but also in promoting health and preventing disability. Audiologists may work in pre-schools, schools, special schools, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, community clinics or private practice.
