Audiologists are professionals who specialize in the assessment of hearing and the rehabilitation of hearing loss. Their activities include newborn hearing screening, identification of hearing loss in children and adults, assessment of hearing, and the selection/fitting of hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other devices. Some audiologists are involved with measurement of noise levels and hearing protection. An audiologist sees people of all ages, from children born with hearing loss to older adults with acquired hearing problems. They frequently work with medical specialists, educators, researchers, and other health professionals in a variety of work settings.
