Hearing aids are part of your hearing rehabilitation journey. We start by gaining an understanding of your unique hearing situation and then create a customized plan to help you maximize your hearing and understanding.
Each ear is unique. Your hearing aid needs to be fine-tuned to you, which we are able to do with our real ear measurement process. Custom ear molds (depending on the type of hearing aid) provide a comfortable, secure fit.
Our aural rehabilitation strategies are focused on attaining the best outcome for you. This can include listening strategies, speech reading, auditory training, unisensory therapy and other therapies.
For individuals with profound hearing loss, a cochlear implant may be the best option to restore a level of hearing. We will work with you to determine if a cochlear implant is right for you and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
Speech language pathology/therapy focuses on the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of communication, cognitive-communication and speech and language disorders. This includes Auditory Processing Disorders, Asperger’s/Autism Spectrum Disorders, Articulation Disorders, Apraxia, and more.
We take an individualized approach to speech and language treatment. All of our therapy is conducted individually or in small groups, ensuring that your needs are addressed quickly and directly. With vast experience, we treat a wide range of goals and diagnoses.
Someone with an auditory processing disorder (APD) has difficulty processing the information that is taken in through the auditory (hearing) system – essentially, they have difficulty processing what they hear. While most commonly recognized in children, adults can also experience an APD.
The diagnosis of an auditory processing disorder is made by an audiologist who has specialized knowledge of auditory processing, like Dr. Datino. After hearing loss is ruled out as a cause, specific tests are done to determine how the brain responds to auditory information.
Our services are high tech by nature and design. Each patient receives our full attention as we work with them to get to the bottom of what is causing their hearing difficulties.
Hearing is a complex process that requires the coordination of a number of different mechanisms within our ears and brain. Our hearing evaluations involve a detailed analysis of the outer, middle, and inner ear and consist of: otoscopic examination, pure tone audiometry, speech testing, and a detailed review of the test results.
Tinnitus affects millions of people and can be very frustrating. Our comprehensive evaluations help determine the cause of the tinnitus and how best to treat it.
Ear wax buildup can cause hearing issues, but ear wax removal is a delicate process that, when done improperly, can cause damage to your hearing. That’s why it’s important to go to a professional who knows how to safely remove the wax from your ears.
Excessive noise exposure can have negative consequences like permanent hearing loss and tinnitus. We offer a variety of custom solutions to help you protect your hearing for your specific needs (ex: music, hunting, workplace noise, etc). In addition, we can customize your hearing aids to have an ear piece specific to your ear anatomy.
