ABOUT DR. REISMAN
Dr. Ruth Reisman, AuD MBA CCC-A is a licensed Audiologist and Hearing Aid Dispenser in New York State. She holds certification by the American Speech and Hearing Association and is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology. Dr. Reisman lead the Audiology department for Lenox Hill Hospital for nearly a decade! She is also an associate professor for the CUNY Graduate Center and Touro College in their Audiology and Communication Departments. She has been recognized as the first audiologist to successfully fit the new Maxum Middle Ear Implant in the tri-state area and the first in the country to successfully fit a Cochlear Bone Anchored Hearing Aid device with the magnetic attract implant system.
She currently supports the field of Audiology on several fronts by educating Audiologists on the counseling, fitting, and rehabilitation of hearing implants, furthering the field as a university professor, as well as assessing and rehabilitating auditory processing disorders, specializing in individuals with Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder AD(H)D and other co-morbid disorders, in her private practice UrbanHearing.com.
Her interest in working with AD(H)D began during her doctoral research which focused on diagnostic assessments with this population. Characteristics of the disorder make it difficult to get accurate hearing measurements both objectively and subjectively, however she was adamant about finding methods to evaluate and treat this population despite the challenges they have with auditory attention and communication deficits. Dr. Reisman has found that through auditory therapy and communication planning we can improve attention, behaviors, and social-emotional skills.
