    Our Educational Audiologists are onsite weekly to work with the children. They routinely check hearing aids, Cochlear Implants, and FM systems while also monitoring our students for ear problems and teacher concerns. The Audiologists work with the teachers, screen hearing when needed, reprogram hearing aids and run verification tests to ensure the students are fit appropriately. They act as a liaison between your students' clinical audiologist and the school ensuring proper settings for the learning environment.
