Audiology Services

Diagnostic Audiology and Hearing Aids

Who We Are:
The John W. Keys Speech and Hearing Center provides a wide range of audiology related services to a population ranging from newborns to adults.

In addition to conventional methods of audiometric testing used to evaluate older children and adults, the Center utilizes a variety of advanced diagnostic test procedures including auditory brainstem testing, otoacoustic emission testing, acoustic immittance testing, visual reinforcement audiometry, and conditioned play audiometry to evaluate hearing sensitivity of young children and infants.

What We Do:
Diagnostic services are used to assist in determining if hearing loss is present and, if so, to quantify the extent of the hearing impairment. Diagnostic services are also used to assist in the identification of the underlying cause of the hearing disorder. In addition to its diagnostic services, the Center provides a wide range of rehabilitative services related to the remediation of hearing impairment. In particular, the Center provides a full range of services related to the evaluation, selection, and fitting of hearing aids as well as a wide variety of assistive listening devices for individuals with hearing loss.
