Communication Needs Assessment
Audiologist Peg Lisi discusses communication needs with a patient and his wife.
An assessment of your communication and listening needs will assist us in guiding you toward appropriate amplification. Using the Client Oriented Scale of Improvement (COSI), or other assessment measures, we will evaluate your current lifestyle and listening needs, focusing on the areas in which you would like to find improvement.
For example, do you have difficulty talking on the telephone or hearing the TV? Trouble hearing in background noise? Do you enjoy listening to music? Do you find any sounds too loud?
The more information you provide regarding your listening demands, the better we will be able to help you chose and make the best use out of your amplification.
