The audiology clinic offers diagnostic and treatment services to individuals of all ages where hearing is a concern. These include comprehensive hearing evaluations for children and adults as well as newborn hearing screening and central auditory processing screening. We also offer amplification services including selection, fitting and follow-up of hearing aid devices. Hearing protection and custom made earmolds for noise protection are also provided.
All diagnostic, treatment, and counseling services are provided by academic and clinical faculty members, all of whom possess master or doctoral degrees, hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and maintain State of Illinois licensure in audiology.
In addition, juniors and seniors majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders are included in the diagnostic and treatment services under the direct supervision of faculty.
Assessment and treatment services are obtained through self-referral or referral from a physician or another professional.
