Today, we are going to talk about important roles played by the audiologist and hearing aids
Unit 1 - Who are Audiologists?
Audiologists are professionals engaged in autonomous practice to promote healthy hearing, communication competency, and quality of life for persons of all ages through the prevention, identification, assessment, and rehabilitation of hearing, auditory function, balance, and other related systems.
Unit 2 - What are Hearing Aids?
A hearing aid or deaf aid is an electroacoustic device which is designed to amplify sound for the wearer, usually with the aim of making speech more intelligible, and to correct impaired hearing as measured by audiometry.
Unit 3 - Why Hearing Aids?
Untreated hearing loss can cause embarrassment, social stress, tension, and fatigue. An estimated 35 million children and adults in the U. S. have a hearing loss. Less than 25% of all people who need hearing aids actually get them. Most people don't realize that the majority of hearing losses can be treated with hearing aids.
If you suspect yourself or your loved ones have hearing loss, please visit an audiologist for a consultation today!
