Audiological Services

The NIA Hearing clinics have three purposes: the identification of hearing loss, the conservation of residual hearing, and the (re)habilitation of the hearing disability. In addition to evaluating children, the audiologists work with school personnel to recommend and maintain FM/HAT (Hearing Assistive Technology) equipment for classroom use. They also play a vital role in making recommendations under the Child Hearing and Vision Act of 2000 (Section 675.140).

There is no charge to parents for the services, as they are supported by local school districts, Early Intervention and other funding sources when available. Some districts have specific requirements for a referral to NIA. Your regional NIA Hearing Clinic will provide more information when needed.

Forms

NIA would like to thank the families we serve and our staff for their patience as we prepare to reopen our clinics for student interaction.  The safety of families and our staff members is our foremost priority.  NIA will follow safety protocol recommended by the  CDC  for everyone to follow as we welcome students back to our clinics. 

We disinfected our clinics so you can rest assured that we actively clean our equipment and frequently touched surfaces in between each student and at the beginning and end of each day.  We ask when you come into the Clinic that you have a face cover for you and your student (2 years and older, if tolerated) before entering. 

All individuals that enter NIA clinics will be requested to answer the following questions and have their temperature read. Your appointment or business you have in the clinic will be rescheduled if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions.

  1. Do you or anyone with you today have or had Covid 19 or Flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) in the last 14 days?

  2. Have you or anyone with you today been in contact with someone that exhibits symptoms or tested positive for Covid 19 or any other illness in the last 14 days?

  3. Have you or anyone with you today been in contact with someone that has traveled within the last 14 days?
