If you have poor hearing and your disability case is before the Social Security Administration, you will need an audiology test to show the extent of your hearing loss. Please keep in mind that audiology testing does not always include speech discrimination testing. Speech discrimination testing will show how well a person can deal with the public and coworkers on a day-to-day basis. Most types of work require dealing with the public, exposure to noise, or frequent communication with fellow workers and supervisors.
