What is an audiologist?
An audiologist is the professional who specializes in the identification and prevention of hearing problems and in the non-medical rehabilitation of those who have hearing problems. An audiologist has a master's degree or a doctoral degree in audiology from an accredited college or university and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), and/or a state license in Audiology.
HEARING AIDS. Hearing aids are meant to be of benefit for hearing-impaired persons of all ages. However, this does not mean that everyone with a hearing problem needs a hearing aid. Hearing problems differ and a person's needs depend on the nature of the hearing loss and the communication impairment. This is why a thorough evaluation by a certified audiologist who is trained and qualified to advise each individual case is warranted.
