At the Baylor University Audiology Clinic you will find audiologists and graduate students who are supervised by audiologists providing a full range of hearing health care services to patients of all ages.
Our students have the opportunity to use state of the art diagnostic audiological testing equipment and have exposure to cutting edge hearing aid technology.
It is estimated that over 28 million children and adults have some degree of hearing loss.
We are surrounded by sounds that keep us in tune with our environment. Many sounds such as the voice of a loved one or the laugh of a child are meaningful and enrich our lives. Hearing loss may interfere with a person's quality of life. Happy occasions such as a family birthday party or eating out at a restaurant may become exhausting to the hearing impaired person as they strain to hear and understand speech. It is not uncommon for the individual with hearing loss to begin to avoid these social situations because communication requires so much effort. Untreated hearing loss can lead to isolation and/or depression.
Our audiologists and supervised graduate students work with patients from within the Baylor community and the Central Texas community at large. Patients are referred to our Clinic by self referral, physicians, school districts, Early Childhood Intervention, Lion's Club, Sertoma Club, and referral from friends or family.
