Comprehensive Audiological Evaluations:
- Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE)
- Immittance Testing (Tympanometry, Stapedial Reflexes)
- Air Conduction Testing
- Bone Conduction Testing
Central Auditory Processing Evaluations (CAP):
- This evaluation includes a series of tests to determine how well a person processes, or does, with what he or she hears. Tests of auditory processing are designed to simulate listening tasks encountered in the real world. These tests stress the auditory system by distorting, degrading, filtering or time altering the speech signal.
- This evaluation includes matching the perceived tinnitus to externally produced sound such as pure tones and narrow band noise. The match is made for both the pitch of the sound and the loudness of the sound. Administration of the Tinnitus Handicap Questionnaire is also part of the tinnitus evaluation.
Workers Compensation Hearing Examinations:
- This is basically a forensic evaluation conducted to determine if a hearing loss and/or tinnitus exists and if so whether the loss may be related to noise exposure and/or head trauma related to the person’s workplace. Inconjuction with these evaluations, Speech and Hearing Associates provides expert testimony in Workers Compensation courts.
