What is an Audiologist?
An audiologist is an allied health professional who diagnoses and manages hearing and balance problems in adults and children. Our goal, especially with young children and babies is assess hearing so that any necessary treatment can enhance and optimise language and communication skills, learning, and ultimately increase employment opportunities.
What does an Audiologist do?
Audiologists are armed with a number of assessments that test hearing level and also whether a hearing loss is permanent or not. The Audiologist will determine whether there is a need for amplification (hearing aids). The Audiologist may also be part of a multidisciplinary group to investigate the cause of hearing loss.
