The ability to hear is one of our most precious gifts. As Helen Keller so poignantly said when asked about her inability to see as well as hear, “Deafness is a much worse misfortune. For it means the loss of the most vital stimulus — the sound of the voice that brings language, sets thoughts astir, and keeps us in the intellectual company of man.”
We have a high degree of respect for audiologists; those men and women whose commitment to diagnose ear problems include hearing difficulties as well as balance – something many of us take for granted. No matter whether you work in a school, hospital, private practice, clinic or retail establishment; the education and training you received as an audiologist enables you to help many people who may otherwise live in or cope with a world of silence.
California requires practicing audiologists to be licensed by the Department of Consumer Affairs, with continuing education requirements for license renewal. California also requires audiologists who dispense hearing aids possess Hearing Aid Dispenser license.
Employment prospects for your career as an audiologist are promising, due in large part to a growing elderly population. This makes your license to practice audiology increasingly valuable. If you are an individual seeking a license in the state of California or are facing charges against your current license, you need competent legal representation.

Apart from our appearance, the sound of our voices is among the first impressions we make when encountering another person.

No one understands this better than you, a speech language pathologist expertly trained in helping individuals with speech-related disorders.

Aside from speech-producing, speech rhythm, speech fluency problems, and voice disorders, as a speech language pathologist you are also the one people turn to to modify foreign or regional accents as well, an ever-increasing and important component of your expertise.

Beyond your graduate and undergraduate studies, you’ve spent hundred of hours in supervised clinical practice and months of intense of clinical experience to earn this designation.
Employment of speech language pathologists is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through the end of the decade, with bilingual speech pathologists in high demand due to a large immigrant population, especially here in California. This enhanced exposure can also make a speech language pathologist’s license, procured through the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board of the California Department of Consumer Affairs, vulnerable to accusation.

Nothing is more precious that the gift of hearing.

The technology developed for the hearing-impaired has grown greatly over the past few decades, especially in the less detectable size and design of those devices that you customize to fit snugly inside the ear. Your knowledge of auditory testing procedures as a hearing aid dispenser, your ability to clearly communicate with a wide range of ages and personalities and your commitment continuing education of new auditory enhancement technologies helps thousands of people regain their dignity and enjoy life once again.
