• Audiology

    Students receive monitoring of amplification, annual electracoustic analysis and otologic referrals as needed. The audiologist conducts comprehensive audiological and hearing aid evaluations in an on-site sound-treated booth. IEP recommendations are made based on test results. In addition, the audiologist consults with classroom teachers to provide hearing loss awareness education. For repairs and ear molds, our audiologist will need a current Medicaid card or payment in advance. She will also need the name and place of the hearing aid purchase. To obtain new hearing aids every 3 years through Medicaid, you must have a referral from the doctor on your Medicaid card. If your child has not seen that doctor in over 6 months, it may be necessary to do so. After calling the doctor listed on the card, you will then have to see an ear doctor to have the purchase approved. If you call in advance and give the audiologist the name of the audiologist at the ear doctor's office and the phone numbers, she can do the required hearing tests, ear mold impressions and ear mold fittings.
