 Abstract

 The purpose of the program is to provide advanced education for audiologists that have a sincere interest in working with patients that have sound sensitivity conditions and/or severe tinnitus.  The program addresses the unique complications these patients encounter.  Following the screening and evaluation process, audiologists will be able to develop an individualized management plan which includes instructive and cognitive counseling, appropriate sound therapy and validation of treatment. The audiologist will receive support services to aid them in working with these often challenging patients.
