Audiology is a challenging and expanding field of clinical science and technology, involving the study of hearing and balance. As a healthcare profession, audiology also involves assessment, management and therapeutic rehabilitation of people with hearing and balance problems and associated disorders.This includes patients of all ages from newborns and children through to working adults and the elderly. An Audiologist is a "hearing health care professional" who identifies and assesses individuals with auditory (hearing) and/or balance concerns, problems or disorders. (Re)habilitation of hearing loss can be administered by an Audiologist through fitting of hearing aids and/or Assistive Listening Devices (ALD’s). You can find Audiologists in hospitals, community health centres, private practice offices, schools, universities and some doctors’ offices.
