An audiologist is one of the most important professional when it comes to your hearing health. They are highly qualified clinicians who evaluate, diagnose, treat and manage hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders.
Audiologists help people at all stages of life, from newborns through to seniors, though some may specialise in certain areas. Their role incorporates conducting hearing assessments, hearing aid prescription, fitting and management of hearing aids as well as rehabilitation and evaluation of more complex hearing concerns.
Speech Language Pathologists work with people of all ages, from babies to adults. SLPs treat many types of communication and swallowing problems. These include problems with speech sounds, language, literacy, voice, fluency, feeding and swallowing.
