Audiologists work with people who have hearing and balance problems.
They help by:
- preventing hearing loss;
- testing and counselling people with hearing loss and tinnitus;
- prescribing, fitting, and teaching about hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other listening devices;
- managing ear wax;
- teaching lip reading and listening skills;
- testing for audiology processing disorders; and
- testing for balance problems.
