I need assistance to choose
Audiologists will establish a client's problems with hearing and listening by conducting interviews and studying background information and will assess the extent of hearing loss and location of the problem using a wide range of techniques, including audiometric tests such as air and bone conduction tests. They will report results of assessment and testing in writing and make referrals to medical practitioners and will provide rehabilitation programs, such as counselling and guidance, for the hearing-impaired and their families. They will assess hearing levels of workers, such as pilots or members of the armed forces and will prescribe, fit and evaluate hearing aids and other devices, such as cochlear implants. They will provide training in communication strategies such as lip reading and in the use of auditory and other devices and will conduct follow-up consultations after hearing aids have been fitted to ensure clients receive the clearest amplification. They will assist with the development and management of noise control and hearing conservation strategies in industry.
