Audiology

  • Audiology  

    AASD employs two Audiologists during the school year. In addition to evaluating every student enrolled in AASD annually, they also offer testing services to children who reside in counties that do not have audiology services.

    Test battery options include otoscopy, middle ear function, Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE’s), aided and unaided pure tone, speech and word recognition evaluations. Electroacoustic testing of hearing aids is also available. Having two Audiologists on staff is an advantage and often necessary when evaluating difficult-to-test or very young children. Families are provided test results before they leave the building with a full written report and audiogram to promptly follow via email or regular mail.
