We’re Certified in Cognitive Screenings.
Audiology Associates now offers cognitive screening which assesses a person’s ability to process information. It is a way for us to assess beyond the ear and gives us more information to better help our patients.
This is not an IQ test or list of questions, rather a simple, automated assessment. The results can help us determine your cognitive health and ensure your hearing correction solutions are right for you.
What is a Cognitive Screening?
Cognitive Screenings evaluates three cognitive domains: memory, visuospatial and executive function and measures two-speed performance parameters: reaction time and speed processing. These domains and parameters are key to overall performance at any age. The results of the cognitive screening aid in providing a comprehensive management strategy for hearing loss. After completing the self-administered, 5-minute cognitive test, a simple 1-page report is immediately generated.
Why should I take it?
Research shows that hearing impairment and cognitive decline are related. In a landmark publication, hearing impairment was determined to be the #1 modifiable risk factor for a cognitive decline when identified and addressed in mid-life.
