Dr Richard Bishop (Au.D) is a Full Member of the New Zealand Audiological Society (MNZAS).
He has more than 40 years experience as a clinical audiologist. he now practices behavioural audiology, specialising in listening difficulties.
In addition to the standard range of audiology services found elsewhere, we specialise in providing an in-depth analysis of auditory function that helps us understand a persons listening difficulties. It is particularly applicable to children with learning disabilities associated with language difficulties (reading, spelling, attending in class, etc), as well as to listening problems arising from brain injury and people with previously undiagnosed listening difficulties (’hidden learing loss’). The approach also helps with problematic tinnitus, sound intolerance (hyperacusis).
The results are integrated into an appropriate personalised intervention which addresses auditory factors (such as audibility and selective listening) with consideration for the impact on social function and, in the case of children, academic and psychosocial development.
