Bloomington-based Communication Disorders Technology Inc. will now offer the National Hearing Test to residents of Bloomington and the Bloomington area.
“Research shows that early intervention in hearing loss leads to better quality of life and greater success with hearing aids,” said Dr. Charles Watson, chief scientist for the National Hearing Test in the United States, in a NationalHearingTest.org press release.
If not treated, hearing loss can result in job loss, social isolation and embarrassment, according to the release.
“Consequently, it’s important for anyone who suspects they’ve suffered hearing loss to have their hearing tested and that a low-cost, convenient test be made widely available,” Watson said.
The Test can be administered through a telephone call and is available for $8.
