Did you know that it is vital to have audiology support in your schools?  Having access to a qualified educational audiologist plays an important role in psychoeducational testing.  Did you know that many school programs do not participate in audiology services simply because they do not have access to a qualified audiologist in their area?  As a result, many students with hearing loss are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.  This may lead to detrimental effects emotionally, psychologically, socially, and academically.  A qualified educational audiologist plays an important role in the academic success of the child, especially those with hearing loss.  We would love to be considered a part of your team! To learn more about how Onsite Audiology can be a vital part of your IEP team, please contact us.

HEARING EVALUATIONS

The method of evaluation depends on the child’s developmental and chronological age. Testing is conducted in a sound treated area and is purposed to determine the degree and type of hearing loss, if present. It also evaluates the child's ability to understand speech in quiet and in the presence of background noise.

OTOACOUSTIC EMISSIONS

This test assesses inner ear function. Testing does not require that children tell or show that sounds are heard. It indicates whether the outer hair cells of the cochlea are functioning, and can be measured to be present or absent as long as the child has no occluding ear wax or other middle ear conditions.

IMMITTANCE TESTING

Tympanometry and acoustic reflex thresholds are two ways audiologists test for proper middle ear functioning. Immittance assessments can detect problems such as middle ear fluid, cerumen (ear wax) blockage, or any other middle ear conditions that may affect hearing.
