Job Description for Pediatric Audiologist

Pediatric audiologists assess, diagnose and treat hearing disorders in children. They conduct evaluations and diagnostic examinations to assess hearing or related problems, communicating results and treatment options with the children's parents or guardians and the children themselves (when possible). They must then determine an appropriate course of treatment, which they administer; this may include fitting and furnishing hearing aids. As treatment progresses, the pediatric audiologist must evaluate progress and make changes to the treatment plan as needed. They also need to keep accurate, up-to-date patient records and provide children and their families with information on communication methods such as American Sign Language (ASL). Pediatric audiologists may also perform a research function, investigating the causes behind hearing disorders and methods of treatment.
