Healthy Hearing

Healthy Athletes Healthy Hearing

Led by volunteer professionals, Healthy Hearing provides tests for cerumen (ear wax) and otoacoustic emissions (overall hearing).

The amount of hearing loss among Special Olympics athletes is much greater than amongst the general population, as most hearing problems are previously undetected or un-served.

Athletes who require followup services are referred to local professionals.
