The University of Arizona Hearing Clinics have provided evaluative and (re)habilitative audiological services to children and adults since 1963. The thriving, state of the art clinics occupy the first floor of the Speech,Language, and Hearing Sciences building on the main campus of The University of Arizona. All audiology faculty are certified as clinically competent (CCC-A) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing-Association. The clinics are newly constructed and are equipped with instrumentation appropriate for the identification and management of hearing impairment or loss.Graduate students work under a certified Audiologist to provide complete hearing evaluations, Central Auditory Processing evaluations, and hearing aid evaluations for adults, which includes selection, fitting and repair of conventional and digital signal processing hearing aids. They see children with a wide variety of hearing disorders. They also provide cochlear implant services, including activation, mapping, and individual or group rehabilitation services. Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE), Auditory Brainstem Evoked Response (ABR), and Auditory Steady-State Response evaluations are available when necessary to assist in determining site of lesion or for infants and other difficult-to-test populations. An assistive listening device center allows patients to experience a variety of products to improve their skills in poor listening environments.
Faculty and students actively participate in research to help ensure best clinical practice. Past and ongoing research projects include multimemory hearing aids, middle ear assessment, and electrophysiologic evaluation of newborn hearing. Frequent review of the current research literature allows for up to date student training and insures the best possible patient care.
Living well with hearing loss requires a comprehensive approach. In addition to our diagnostic services, the Adult Hearing Clinic has ongoing classes as part of the Living with Hearing Loss Program. This program is funded in part by the James S. and Dyan Pignatelli/Unisource Clinical Program in Audiologic Rehabilitation for Adults. The program is described in its entirety, including information on how to become involved in classes, at the Living With Hearing Loss website.
Consultation is available on hearing conservation, including occupational noise assessment, worker evaluation and monitoring, and education regarding risk of noise induced hearing loss.
