My name is Pam Reynolds-Klocke, and I am an audiologist in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. I have been practicing as an audiologist for 12 years. I graduated from the University of Utah with a masters degree in Audiology in 2001. I am currently working on my Doctor of Audiology degree (AuD) through AT Still University. This website is intended to be a resource for children newly diagnosed with hearing loss and their families.
I was diagnosed with a unilateral, mild to profound mixed hearing loss in my left ear at age 3. Back when I was young, newborn hearing screening programs didn’t exist. Thankfully, I had a very attentive nursery school teacher who noticed that I was never able to hear someone whisper in my left ear during the game of Telephone. I was diagnosed a few weeks later. There were many challenges growing up with hearing loss, but I learned a lot along the way. It also inspired my career choice in audiology so that I could help others with hearing loss.
There is so much technology available now to help children with hearing loss, and there is also tons of information to help educate parents and family members about the impact of hearing loss. I’ve tried to consolidate that into this website, as well as some links to give you more information. Please feel free to send any comments or questions! I hope this information will help you on your journey.
