TINNITUS CONSULTATION and MANAGEMENT

 

Tinnitus is the term for noise in the ears or head which is not from an outside source and is usually described as buzzing, ringing, whistling, hissing or pulsing sounds. Tinnitus is experienced by many people. A hearing assessment will provide information about the individual's hearing system and any medical issues that may need to be investigated. Management can occur by gaining an understanding of how the hearing system works, what triggers contribute to an individual's perception of the tinnitus, and different strategies that can assist.

 

These appointments can be accessed through Medicare with a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) care plan from a GP, or otherwise charged at private fees. Rebates may be available through your private health fund.

These appointments are designed to assist people with hearing loss & their communication partners to become more effective communicators in difficult listening situations. The use of strategies, listening devices, and access to support organisations can greatly improve a person's inclusion in conversation and other social interactions. 

 

These appointments can be accessed through Medicare with a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) care plan from a GP, or otherwise charged at private fees with rebates available through your Health Fund if covered.

 

 

 

 

 

We use the Listening in Spatialized Noise–Sentences (LiSN-S) test for Central Auditory Processing assessment in children 6 years and older.

 

The ability to separate important speech from all other noises at school and home is difficult for someone with a Central Auditory Processing (CAP) disorder. This occurs when a person with normal hearing has trouble interpreting the signals that they hear due to a breakdown in processing on the way to the brain.

 

The Listening in Spatialized Noise–Sentences Test (LiSN-S® Cameron & Dillon 2006) is used to diagnose spatial processing deficits in people experiencing listening difficulties in noise. It has a high test-tetest reliability, is highly sensitive and scientifically robust (Cameron & Dillon 2007). Once any areas of difficulty have been identified, management strategies to improve the child’s ability to use auditory information can be implemented.

 

These appointments are charged at a set fee. Rebates may be available through your private health fund.
