Think Audiology Launches Consumer-oriented Website

Think Audiology announces the launch of http://www.thinkaudiology.org, described as a consumer website and mission to bring attention to the research-based evaluation and treatment of hearing, tinnitus, and balance conditions and the role that audiologists play in assisting the consumer in their journey. The site is said to offer basic information about a variety of audiologic and vestibular conditions along with treatment options, and provides consumers with step-by-step guidance and resources on how to best address their concerns and their condition.

The Think Audiology site offers education, resources, and guidance on the following topics:

  • Hearing
  • Hearing Screening
  • Prevention
  • Aural Rehabilitation
  • Balance (Vestibular System)
  • Tinnitus (Ringing in the Ears)
  • Hearing aids
  • Implantable Hearing Devices
  • Cerumen (Earwax) Management
  • Auditory Processing
  • Misophonia/Hyperacusis (Sound Sensitivity)

Dr Kim Cavitt, AuD, said, “Physicians have an invaluable role in the evaluation and treatment of audiologic and vestibular conditions, but only about 10% of hearing and balance disorders have medical, pharmacological, or surgical treatment options or solutions. This is where audiology comes into the equation and where an audiologist can be valuable to consumers in addressing their communication and balance issues and improving their quality of life. We are not merely hearing care professionals, we are audiologists.”
