MAY IS BETTER HEARING AND SPEECH MONTH

For over 75 years May has been designated as Better Hearing and Speech Month -- a time to raise public awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the various forms of communication impairments to include those of hearing, speech, language, and voice. Communication impairments affect the most vulnerable in our society -- the young, the aged, the disabled, and the poor.
Audiologists are the professions concerned with the prevention, identification, and treatment of hearing and balance impairments. After earning a doctoral degree (consisting of required coursework, research thesis, and residency work) and passing a national examination these professionals are eligible for certification and licensure.
The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders reports that approximately 43,000,000 people in the United States suffer from a speech, voice, language, or hearing impairment. An estimated 28 million Americans have a hearing loss that can be treated; yet fewer than 7,000,000 use a hearing aid. You could be one of them. Now is a good time to take stock of your own hearing and seek help if you think you may have a problem.
You have a hearing loss if you:
• frequently ask people to repeat themselves
• often turn your ear toward a sound to hear it better
• understand people better when you wear your glasses or look directly at their faces
• lose your place in group conversations
• keep the volume on your radio or TV at a level that others say is too loud
• have pain or ringing in your ears

If you see yourself in any of the above categories, you should have your hearing tested. Ask any staff member here at ENT Head & Neck Specialists for information on hearing testing, or to set up an appointment.
