Become a Certified Cognitive Hearing Specialist

Spend 2 days going through the CogniHear Bootcamp and have the knowledge, tools, and plan to advance your practice.

Do you ever wonder if going through all the work to be an audiologist was worth it?

Let’s be honest, hearing loss is not taken seriously! Not within the medical community, insurers, government or the community as a whole. So, it has become about the hearing aids, and clinical expertise is overlooked. Why is there no value on our clinical expertise?

Could it be because we have been doing the same thing for ____years? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

If we want different results in audiology; better reimbursement, more credibility, improved adoption rates, and higher job satisfaction WE NEED TO CHANGE!

But how? So many in the field have spoken to needing change, but there has not been a clear path to what that is, why it is worth it and how to implement in the clinic.

There has never been a better time to make a CHANGE in audiology!

I want you to take a minute and picture where you want to be 3 to 5 years from now...

Now let me ask you this:

Do you honestly believe that if you kept doing the same as you are right now, that you'd end up where you want to be?

The answer is no!

The only way to get a different result is to do things differently!

Introducing CogniHear

Feeling like your audiology degree is becoming obsolete?
Tired of the perception that you are simply a hearing aid salesperson?

Learn how to move beyond traditional hearing tests that only assess the periphery to one that assesses the entire auditory system, cochlea to cortex.

Improve patient outcomes of our patient’s ability to hear in the real world, stop patient perception that you are simply a hearing aid salesperson.

Differentiate yourself, improve help rate, improve patient satisfaction

The CogniHear training program is truly like no other! This program connects current research on cognitive and auditory processing pertaining to age-related hearing loss, with clinical application. The result is better patient experience, improved adoption rates, better management of expectations, improved patient perception of the value of treating hearing loss, a focal shift from hearing aids to auditory rehabilitation.

I was Inspired by research to implement a more holistic hearing healthcare approach, one that assessed and treated the peripheral and central aspects of hearing. Since I’m too impatient to wait for things in audiology to change, I just started trying things in my own audiology private practice over the past several years. The result is CogniHear’s Functional Hearing Assessment. You have the opportunity that I did not have, someone to pave the way and show it to you, and that is what the CogniHear program does.

What Other Practice Owners Are Saying

D'Ann Rudden, Au.D.
"With the CogniHear program, we finally have the missing links for implementing best practices that audiologists are most well equipped to provide. Thank you Dr. Hill and CogniHear!"

Katherine Gamer, Au.D.,
"Dr. Heidi Hill has an impressive knowledge base of hearing cognition and listening effort. She offers the science and methods needed for audiologists to educate and counsel patients and their family members effectively and memorably. I have tried several aspects of this in the past but now feel I have a system in place for consistent patient care and counseling."

Susan Sheehy, Au.D.
"The CogniHear program is essential for audiologists that treat hearing loss and want to remain relevant in an industry plagued with disruption. Understanding hearing, cochlea to cortex, will change how you manage hearing loss, and provide you the tools needed to produce better outcomes for your patients and their families."

Rachel Appleton, Au.D.
"Cognihear is well-worth every minute! Heidi has put together all the research we need and want but we never find the time to do it ourselves. She explains it so easily and gives you all the tools you need to implement ear-to-brain hearing in your own clinic."

About The Course

Module 1:
Learn the research behind incorporating neural and cognitive aspects into hearing healthcare so that you are able to expand your clinical expertise for clinical use.

Module 2:
Learn a new diagnostic protocol (functional hearing assessment) that goes beyond traditional audiometry and peripheral hearing. This protocol provides a more functional experience for your patients and provides you with more information about your patient’s entire auditory system, ear-to-brainLearn the measurements and protocol and why it was chosenLearn how to make use of new measurementsYou will be shown how to get the tools that you will need to implement this new protocol including how to obtain the new measurements, instructions on setting up tests, scoring spreadsheet, graphic scoring to review with patient and send to physician, report templates for OMS

Module 3:
Learn how to incorporate the research with the data collected from the functional hearing assessment to use for counseling, making decisions regarding rehabilitation including audibility, auditory training, and educational supportReceive ongoing support through group “jam sessions”, FAQs, and community support from other colleaguesReceive updates on materials as colleagues collaborate and more research and clinical tools become available

"I guarantee you will learn something that you can implement in your practice!"

Meet Heidi Hill, Au.D., CogniHear creator, and your new guide to making real change clinically. I believe what makes CogniHear truly unique is that it was created by someone just like you, a clinical audiologist. I have a small practice in Minnesota. My practice location is not in an affluent area. I have no physicians referring to me, and loads of competition including 3 Costcos within a stone’s throw! Marketing was not effective and I was tired of being perceived as a hearing aid dispenser when I know so much more! I absolutely hate not being able to help a patient, so I am constantly striving to improve my clinical expertise. Research created a passion to implement a more holistic approach to hearing healthcare, but there was no clear way to make what I was reading in research clinically applicable in a private practice. Since I’m too impatient to wait for someone else to figure things out, I just started to work at it myself within my clinic. This process took a number of years, grit and many mistakes! It shouldn’t be that hard to implement changes in the clinic, so with the help of my colleagues at Entheos we developed CogniHear.

Not Sure If Cognihear Is Right For you?

CogniHear is NOT for everyone, and truth be told we’d prefer to help you figure out if it’s not right for you BEFORE you join rather than waste your time. So, let’s cut to the chase…

Audiologists who want best outcomes for patients by providing best practices in audiologyAudiologists who are willing to work towards change to improve our field
People looking for a quick get rich solution-if you think that taking this course will make you successful overnight you will be disappointed. Real change takes doing the right thing for the right reasons and it takes time.Idea chasers-if you are constantly chasing the next idea and never get anything off the ground, this isn’t a fit for you. You can’t “dip your toe in” and think that this will work. You have to dive in to make real change. It’s scary, that’s why there is loads of help and support. We are looking to make a community of change makers, not idea chasers!

Why Now is the Time

Now is the time for change, if we don’t our expertise will be lost in the dust and the ultimate one to lose will be our patient!

The next LIVE Bootcamp starts on:

Still not convinced? Let me lay down some FAQs for you!

I’ve already been to classes and I never seem to get them implemented
That is often my frustration as well with taking classes. It’s difficult to implement despite my best intentions. First of all, after taking this class I have no doubt that you will have the motivation needed for change! Second, there are so many tools within the program to try and clear the path for you. And last, I KNOW that you can do it, because I did!Is there a shorter program available. I don’t think I want to do the whole thing.
The key to implementing a clinical shift is to have a firm understanding of why and the research behind it. That is why we start with the science and research. This program is not about giving you steps and a bunch of scripts. The focus is to update YOUR clinical expertise, because no 2 patients are the same. There is no cookbook for treating patients. If there were, we would not be necessary!There are NO shortcuts to real change “There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs”-the plaque hanging on my wall!
