Susanna Meyer

Working with individuals with hearing loss requires knowledge and skills obtained in courses such as normal speech and language development, hearing science, speech science, audiology, speech disorders, language disorders, voice disorders and counseling. It is work that requires collaboration with parents, family members, teachers, psychologists, speech language pathologists, audiologists as well as pediatricians or primary care physicians. Professionals in communication sciences and disorders will find it a rewarding field that not only improve communication, but also the quality of life of the individual with hearing loss and their loved ones. Even if you do not remain in the field of communication sciences and disorders, you will understand the impact of hearing loss on communication and be an empathetic communication partner.
