What is Audiology and Speech Sciences?
Audiology (also called hearing science) is the study of normal and impaired auditory sensation and perception, and the technologies and other rehabilitation strategies for people with hearing loss and other auditory processing disorders.
Audiologists use various tests such as hearing tests, otoacoustic emission measurements, videonystagmography, and electrophysiologic tests to determine whether someone can hear within the normal range, and if not, which portions of hearing are affected and to what degree. If hearing loss is determined, the patient may be issued a hearing aid, cochlear implants, or undergo surgery.
Audiology and speech-language pathology are often linked, since disorders of one system often impact the other.
