Strong counseling skills help the audiologist build a positive relationship with a family with a child with hearing loss. Families appreciate clear, honest presentation of information so that they can make informed decisions. The relationship between the family and the audiologist can last throughout the child’s life so, building and maintaining a strong relationship is crucial in working with families.
