Audiology

Audiological services are designed to identify, assess, and provide treatment for students with a hearing loss. The educational audiologist uses a variety of instruments and methods to diagnose a hearing loss, recommends and evaluates hearing aids, FM systems, and other types of assistive hearing devices, and instructs teachers and students on the proper use of assistive equipment. The educational audiologist also fits and makes ear molds for hearing aids and tests for their effectiveness. The educational audiologist also screens preschool children during child development days as requested by school districts.
