The voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest until it has gained a hearing.
A Smile can speak thousands of words.
Praise does wonders for our sense of hearing.

Look For Professional Credentials
As you research different audiology and hearing aid businesses, you’ll find a variety of titles following an audiologist’s name.“These titles can appear confusing,” says Dr. Weissman, “But it’s important to understand what they represent.” A Doctor of Audiology earns a doctorate in audiology from an accredited university. The audiologist’s title then becomes Au.D. or Doctor of Audiology. This degree represents the highest level of education an audiologist can receive. Dr. Weissman holds this degree. You may also see M.S. or M.A. in a provider’s title. Audiologists with these titles have earned a master’s degree in audiology and have completed extensive academic and hands-on training. The other common title is CCC-A, which represents Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology. A hearing specialist with this title is certified to perform audiology services. Dr. Weissman holds this certification. “Education and training matters,” Weissman concludes. “Don’t settle for a hearing test and hearing aid provider who doesn’t have strong credentials. Instead, seek board-certified, licensed audiologists who are best equipped to provide excellent advice, diagnostic training and service.”
