Today I would like to highlight the skills of an Audiologist and Audiometrist.

An audiologist has studied a Master’s Degree and has completed a clinical internship and has years of clinical training and experience to evaluate every aspect of your auditory system.

An audiologist performs comprehensive audiological evaluations including tests for hearing sensitivity, speech understanding, middle ear function, inner ear and auditory nerve function.

Audiologists are trained in:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of balance disorders
  • Evaluation and management of tinnitus
  • Assessment and treatment of hearing loss in children
  • Joint hearing care with GP/ENT
  • Wax removal and management
  • Rehabilitation therapies for aided and unaided hearing to improve speech reading and assistive therapies
  • Dispense and fit hearing devices and accessories as required using Best Practice outcome measurements
  • Advice on maintenance and proper use of hearing aids

An audiometrist has a TAFE certificate or Diploma in Audiometry and are hearing care professionals who specialize in the non-medical assessment and management of communication difficulties caused by hearing loss.

  • Sell and fit hearing devices and accessories
  • Fit and program aids
  • Advice on maintenance and proper use of hearing aids
  • Basic hearing evaluations and screening

You gain so much more by visiting an audiologist.
