Audiologists specialize in providing nonmedical services related to hearing, deafness and balance. We work in a variety of places in which hearing and balance care is offered, including private clinics, hospitals, government agencies and training locations such as Universities.
Audiologists conduct assessments to arrive at audiological diagnoses to specify the type of hearing, balance or processing disorder.
The audiological diagnosis is the basis for the audiologist’s individualised rehabilitation recommendations.
Audiologists provide primary rehabilitation through hearing aid fitting. Where indicated, counselling and communication training are provided by Audiologists to ensure optimal rehabilitation outcomes.
Audiologists provide ongoing long-term support for all types of auditory and vestibular disorders.
Audiologists work in close association with medical specialists who are, in some cases, able to diagnose underlying causes of hearing and balance disorders, and may provide medical treatment options in conjunction with our services.
