The Audiology Department at the Arkansas School for the Deaf provides a variety of services which include the identification and management of hearing loss. Service delivery involves diagnostic evaluations, fitting of appropriate amplification and troubleshooting amplification such as conventional hearing aids, bone anchored hearing aids, cochlear implants and infrared systems. Our senior audiologist also provides parental counseling regarding the educational effects of hearing loss for our students that matriculate at ASD and also for those hearing-impaired individuals, ages birth to 21, who are served across the state through our ASD Outreach Program.
Dr. Brooks Gibson Wolfe has been our senior audiologist for the Arkansas School for the Deaf for 18 years. Prior to that, she was the infant hearing supervisor for the Arkansas Department of Health. She manages the audiological service provision for students at ASD as well as assisting our Outreach audiologist with hearing testing and appropriate intervention for those hearing-impaired infants and children across the state. Her passion is to help each hearing-impaired child reach their full potential by working with other disciplines, e.g. speech-language pathologists, psychological examiners and teachers.
She received her undergraduate degree from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, her master’s degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and her doctoral degree in audiology for the University of Florida at Gainesville.
She has been married for many years and she and her husband, Townsend, have two miniature dachshunds, Sweet Potato and Rum Raisin.
