Identifying and diagnosing auditory processing/cognitive problems may first occur when the child or the school notices some or all of the following: the child has a poor memory or what he read or was told, or his or her organizational abilities are poor, or the child has trouble concentrating or communicating. Sometimes the problems are so noticeable that parents seek a diagnosis of "auditory processing" deficiency from the school or from a specialist. Auditory processing Disorder is often confused with attention deficit disorders. A diagnosis for either and or both could be given. Chears offers therapy for APD whether it is a diagnosis of APD or Add (ADHD).
What did you say?
Without taking a hearing test, you may have difficulty identifying whether or not you have a true hearing loss. It could really be true that your friends and family mumble and/or do not speak clearly. Or it could be that the background noise in your home or workplace is unusually loud. Perhaps the TV is malfunctioning. Or you could have a one-time treatable problem like a build up of wax in your ear or even fluid behind the ear drum. But if you find yourself asking "what did you say?" too often, a simple visit to Chears Audiology will tell you what you need to know about your hearing.
At Chears Audiology we will check your ears for wax and/or fluid behind the ear drum, all at no charge. We will give you a free screening to see if you have a hearing loss and to evaluate its severity. We will make a recommendation as to whether a full diagnostic evaluation is warranted. And then it will be up to you!
Stop in today for a free cup of coffee and a free screening. We would love to have you!
